    My moms birthday present DONE!!

    Next monday my mom will turn 80!!
    She wanted a quilt she told me some time ago and wanted to buy it from me.......... I don't think my mom should pay for a quilt I made.....
    I made trip around the world quilt almost a year ago I think, and sold it to a friend, after I told my mom that good news she said, " Oh I would have loved to buy that quilt from you..."

    So guess what.......I started another one for my mom!
    Took the best part of last week off to finish it, this one turned out huge.....handstiching the binding down took me forever....

    I love how it turned out, and I am sure my mom will love it as well, monday she will have her own Trip Around the World quilt!
    For batting I have used a nice flanel, mom likes everything natural and not to thick, so real cotton was the best option for her, it is not as fluffy as other batting, but still nice and warm. With all the colors going on, this is a great batting I think, the quilt is heavy with all the fabrics and seams....so flanel is a great choice I think for quilts this big and heavy. I did wash and dry it before using

    Here are some pictures, I hope you like it!

      Ain't Mom's the best cheerleaders in the world? Friends are a close second. You did a wonderful job. I love this quilt. Scrappy wins hands down. Love it, love it, love it. She will treasure it.
      Happy Birthday to Mom.

                First off, Happy Birthday MOM - Sounds like she is a sweetheart! Secondly, that is one of the most beautiful quilts I have seen in a while (it seems like I say or think that so often on here). My Birthday is in the middle of April if you want to do a third quilt (LOL).

                  Love it! Your trip around the world quilts are the best! What size strips do you start out with?

                    That's so bright and cheerful. What an amazing selection of fabrics and colours. I love it and I think you're going to make your mum very happy.

                            Your Mom will LOVE her beautiful ATW quilt. You did a great job on it, Klasien. The colors are so nice and bright and they pop with the black accents. Great job!!

                              That is so beautiful! I wish I could see your mom's face when she sees it. Happy birthday to mom and fantastic job. And, yes, hand stitching the binding seems to take forever but a wonderful finishing touch.
