swoon for mom

Here’s my finished swoon.

This quilt was really special for me to make.  I had gotten some Miscellany fabrics and kept thinking how much they reminded me of something my mom would love.  Plus I’ve always wanted to make her a quilt (I’ve dumped enough bags and totes on her to stuff her closets).

I’m was crazy excited when I got it back from being quilted the other day.  I could not sew the binding on fast enough, wrap it up, and dash it over to my mom and dad’s house to surprise her.  I could barely keep my lips shut these past few weeks.

I love my mom, she’s my best friend.  She’s been such a huge support for me.  I’ve learned an amazing amount of things from her and I am so grateful for that.

[I had to include this shot of this Annie’s Farm Stand text fabric, you see, it’s perfect because my mom runs the local farmers market (in my hometown in Minnesota no less) – so the Minnesota Grown text had to be in the block!]

And because I was so excited and wanted to make a label, I quick did this one on my machine, haven’t ever used the letters function before, but it was pretty cool.

Quilted by the lovely Lindsay, owner of  Eileen Quilts.  Thank Lindsay, you’re amazing!  Pieced by me, machine stitched binding.  Wohoo!

And a special thanks to my mom for holding up the beast in a 60 mph wind storm on top of the bluff at dusk! ♥
