As you all know - My mom quilts like an amazing Quilting-Goddess. She teaches at Fat Quarters Quilt Shop and gets paid by every person, every week. If they are there or not - they want to hold their spot! She has done this since I was in middle school and all through high school - I met my best friend Sarah because her mom was in my moms class all those years ago (feeling old anyone? ha ha)
Anyways - Since she is my mom, and she likes me - I get her all to myself - as my own personal quilt teacher. I have made lots of quilts for my kids (So has she, but this isn't her blog) and now that I have a girl - I have picked some cute girlie stuff!
And I get to make whatever I want with the best woman there to help me. Dana Livingston! Doing my cutting when I get board of the monotony, ironing my pieces and giving them back to me in an all-in-order, neat stack and all I have to do is sit there and pump them through the machine while and get tunnel vision. Then she will get it all hooked up how it should go on her wooden quilting machine, with batting and backing and top where they belong and I will stand there and quilt "My Quilt"while she watches my 3 kids. Then I can say, "I made a quilt for Sophie!".......I love my mom.
Note: Even after all the hard work I put in to
making quilts for my children - Ask them who made the quilts
we have, and they will ALWAYS say
that Grammie made them.
