    Mom's Inside out quilt

    penelope2.jpgpenelope5.jpg

    Hi, I just had to share...

    I ordered the Zoey-Christine layer cake over a year ago. The fabrics were just so beautiful I had a hard time convincing myself to cut them up or use them!! I just liked looking at them

    A few weeks ago, I was visiting my Mom who is 86 years young, whom in her time was a very talented quilter and I was trying to explain to her what a rag quilt was! I told her," well you sew it just the opposite of what you normally would and sew with the seams exposed. Then you clip those seams and wash and dry it so it gets fluffy." Now, reading back what I just typed, I can understand why she just sat there and looked at me funny! She said, "So it's like putting your dress on inside out?" hahaha! Yeah Mom, kinda like that!

    So I decided that this was what I was going to make her for Christmas! I looked on You Tube for tutorials by Jenny and I came across the Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt and thought, "this would be pretty as a rag quilt" So away I went looking for fabrics. I was sitting in my sewing room and there was the Zoey-Christine Layer Cake that I had ordered over a year ago just sitting there looking at me! I stood up, held those beautiful fabrics and decided it was time. Something so beautiful needed to be used for my just as beautiful Mom! ♥

    So here it is...I used the Zoey-Christine Layer cake and two charm packs for this quilt. It will fit just perfect on her twin bed in the nursing home and I'm hoping after she gets over the shock of it kinda being like inside out....that she loves it!! LOL It is backed with a nice soft cream flannel and I have washed it twice to make it nice and fluffy
    I just love the fabrics and I loved doing the Double Slice with Jenny!

    I'll have to update at Christmas with photos of her. Wish me luck!

      Should have told her it was like chenille, she would have understood that.

        I never considered piecing a block and then using it in a rag quilt. It turned out great!

                        I'm sure your mom will love it, after all you made it just for her. Sewing in good thoughts and remembering good times spent together.
