My favorite thing to do on Mother's Day is to sew. I stay in my pajamas all day. I am not responsible for cooking or cleaning or even taking the dog out. I start a new little project that I know I can finish in one day. It's like a sewing vacation for me.
So I was thinking about taking one of my patterns from my upcoming book (Quilt Fiesta) and making it in miniature and framing it. I had to simplify it quite a bit, because instead of the blocks being 9 1/2" finished, this small quilt had blocks that were 1" finished. I used a very small blanket stitch to do the applique and did not piece the border.
Oh, I did have to get dressed to run out and get the frame - poor planning on my part. But I finished it today and it looks great even in miniature. The quilt measures 7"x7". Happy Mother's Day to me and to all of you.
