her quilted pillow

This was the mother’s day gift I made for my mom.  It coordinates with the Swoon quilt I made her.  She requested a pillow for the bed she has it on and I think it’s a nice finishing touch for the bed.

I worked until the very last minute on this, but I’m so glad I finished!  I was quilting it with about a half hour before I had to leave the house for the day and just managed to finish.  After I gave it to my mom I tried to open up the zipper and it got stuck!  I was so mad!!!

Luckily my dad came to the rescue with a pliers and we got it open, phew!  The zipper pull had actually pulled past the end stops, but after we pulled it open I sewed the zip a little shorter so it won’t happen again.

Hope you had a lovely mother’s day.  What do you make for the mother in your life?  Or maybe you made something for yourself?  I’d love to hear about it.  :)

[just had to show off this cool vintage table cloth my Aunt Mary has, love it!]

    I made my mom a big ole batch of blondies! Not sewing related, but she was happy, nonetheless. And that’s what counts!

    Your pillow is beautiful, as is everything on you blog!

    Looks like a perfectly fun mother’s day!! Love the quilt and the cushion, they go really well together without being too matchy.

    What a perfect gift, Anna! I sent my mom a Zakka rotary cutter pouch that I made in the sew-along last week.

    Such a lovely pillow you made your mum! It looks just lovely with your amazing swoon!! Glad you got the zip finished, so annoying when that happens.
    P.S. your aunt’s tablecloth is SOOO gorgeous!!! Very jealous :)

    absolutely lovely!!! I planted annuals for my mother (plus promised her a dinner out with me). For me, on Mother’s Day I actually finished the ‘summer blouse’ from WEEKEND SEWING. It was a first garment for me. I actually came out pretty well and looks great if you don’t look too close :) Next time I’d make it longer as it’s a little too short for me, but live and learn and I’m happy, wearing it today and got TWO comments from people on it! I’m ready to tackle the ‘Anna Tunic’ now. :)

    okay, I meant ‘It’ came out pretty well, not ‘I’….. although I guess I’m not tooooo bad. :)

    Beautiful pillow and quilt! Your Mom is a lucky lady to have such a talented daughter. I have not been well so I made me a new bag for Mother’s Day and I absolutely love it. It’s bright, cheerful and “Springy” and it did cheer me up. Happy Sewing!!!

    Your Miscellany makes have really stayed in my head- I have been trying not buy stuff but I caved- seeing the pillow as well pushed me over the edge! As for that table cloth! <3
