Mom's quilt top

Well, I still suck at blogging. I was gonna post 3 times this week, but totally forgot we were starting our home schooling. The first week is always kinda crazy and throw in a 4 week old baby and it just gets crazier!

Here is the quilt top for my Mom that I finished in like June! lol Not the greatest picture, I had laid it out on the floor in my new sewing room to figure out how big I needed to make the back. Figured I had better take pictures while it was out! That is as far as I got on doing anything. I really am itching to start quilting it, but no time right now. I just walk into my beautiful new room and dream about all the sewing I am gonna do one day *sigh* Oh well, it is more fun to take care of Sophia right now. She will only be this little for a short time.

Promise, I will post pics of the sewing room soon.

edited to add that if you click on the picture you can see the quilt much better.

You Mum is going to love it! Such a pretty quilt. I am sure you will get back to it before long. Glad to see that Sophia is settling in well. Take care Tonya and hope you get some sleep!

Your quilt top for your mom is beautiful. I love the soft colors. I am just catching up on your blog. I haven't read since you had the baby. She is so adorable. I don't know how you do it. Maybe you could give Kate Gosselin a few lessons.

Take care
