When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I have not a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.
As promised, here is mom and the blue quilt she made alongside with me! I decided to make a pink quilt out of stripes as shown previously and she made hers is blue because;
1) she loves anything blue
2) it’s her signature color and pink is mine
3) mom has mostly blue patterned fabrics in her stash and:
4) she got inspired because I was inspired – so we made similar quilts!
Inspiration is contagious as you might know. Being around inspired people is the best thing to get your brain working. One of my favorite things to do is to inspire others, that is one of many reasons why I still come back and write this blog.
Making a quilt together with mom was a lot of fun. Viewing them like this, side by side, they are like a portrait in fabric of me and my mother. Quilts who show the personality of mom and daughter! Mom’s quilt is made by a person with a lot more experience, used to cutting straight and sewing correct. Hers is even a bit larger than mine.
I like this pattern a lot! You cut squares as usual with this pattern, but instead of sewing them together side by side you draw a line on the backside from top corner to opposite corner on each patch. Pair two patches together and stitch on each side of that line and cut them apart. When you fold them up you have to squares made out of two triangles each! I want to try to make a quilt like that too some day!
