Over the weekend I finally finished Mum’s quilt. Finally.
It’s hard to believe that it is just shy of 18 months ago since I first chose the fabrics. Sounds ridulous right…18 months for just one quilt?
Well, for about 6 months of that time I had actually hidden it away in the back of my craft cupboard because I thought I didn’t like the colour combination anymore! Crazy really, but it worked. Once I got it back out again I loved them just as much as when I first saw them. They really are ‘Mum’ colours.
And as I was determined to keep it a secret from her, I had to continue finishing other sewing projects whilst hers was a work in progress, so as not to raise any suspicion.
Considering it is only the second quilt I’ve ever made and of my own design, I couldn’ t be happier with how lovely it is!
Her birthday was actually on Valentine’s Day but she was away in Perth, so I’ll be giving it to her tonight. Hope she likes it!
