It is all finished and in the wash.
While I had a lot of fun piecing the star blocks, I honestly did not enjoy the rest of it. I think I’m going to take a break from quilting for awhile. I’m sure my mom’s going to like it, and I know it’ll be a surprise for her when she gets it. Except I think that she was thinking she was going to get an elephant quilt. And I’m basing that on the facebook feedback on one of my sister’s photos.
My sister spent most of June making this baby quilt. It was a commission for a friend of a friend. So, Carol posted this photo to facebook, and everyone thought it was for Mom because she loves elephants! According to my Dad, Mom saw the photo and asked, “Is that for me??!!”
I still think she’ll like it. Its a large, lap quilt. Just the right size for my Mom to to take a nap under while on the couch.
And here’s a fun outtake from the front yard photo shoot – in an animated gif!
