In the last week before Mother's Day, I decided I needed to make something for my mom and mother-in-law, as opposed to giving them the usual flowering hanging basket.
So, what follows is my labor of love, which was completed at about midnight on the night before the holiday, as is standard form with me and my crazy last-minute ideas. I always think to myself "self, you are never making gifts right before a holiday again!" but I don't listen very well.
I used the Field of Tulips Quilt Pattern at Moda Bake Shop. I made four blocks from the pattern and sashed them together and used a solid yellow for the border. The two toppers are not exactly alike; the light pinks are two different fabrics.
I used a squiggly quilting pattern on one and kind of a scallop on the other. Maybe these quilting methods have other, more technical names?
I really like how they turned out, nice and bright for spring/summer.
