Mama's quilt

This weekend I finished one of my projects. I'm very good at starting quiltprojects and I promised myself not to start a new one, before I at least finished another one. Well this quilt is finished, and it's for my mothers birthday, but that's in october so I'm on the safe side.

It's a "split nine patch" one of my favorite patrons. I started in march (2009) when Marne was here. It took me about 5 months. The top is made from Connecting Thread Fabrics, I used 4 charm packs and two yards of the Indigo serie. Although you can't see it very well on the picture in each square I quilted a little schoolhouse. I made the top with my sewing machine, but the quilting is done by hand. The only part that is missing now is the label.

It looks wonderful! A special gift for your mom. I like your hand quilted houses in the indigo squares!

That really has turned out so nicely. It is going to look terrific on your mom's sofa. I am playing with a split 9 patch using some Hawaiian fabrics. Not sure about it yet. Have a great week-end.
