mama's birthday


Seldomly does a quilt turn out better than I planned.  This one surprised me.  I ordered this fabric from sew mama sew awhile back, and wasn't quite sure what i was going to do with it.  Then I realized that my mother's birthday was coming  towards me at a fierce pace!  A strippy quilt was in order!  And here it is.  I adore the colors and the  size.  And I adore my mother.  Happy birthday mom.  These bright and cheery colors remind me of you!

Oh, Heidi. These colors are super super super pretty together. And the stripes are perfect to show off all those pretty prints. Lucky mom!
