Happy Birthday Mum!

Today is my mums birthday.  So many, many months ago I thought it was time to make something special for her to celebrate how important she is to me.
If you stop by this blog regularly you will have seen this quilt evolve over lots of posts.  I was pleased with how this "Disappearing Nine Patch" came together.  The actual top was quick to sew but as I decided to hand quilt, that where many nights were spent stitching inside the boxes with variegated Perle 8 thread.

I love the richness of the yellows, pinks and oranges and I used the white to give it a crisp fresh feeling.  I am lucky enough to still be able to celebrate these special days with her as I know she herself has not been able to with her own mum.  I hope she likes it and that it will find a special place alongside her to keep her warm and snug.  Happy Birthday mum - I love you!
