Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday Mom! And right now my Mom is thinking to herself......"my birthday was on March 4th......." Yes, I know, I know. I'm a little bit late......o.k.....I'm a lot bit late. I was well on my way to getting this done in mid-February but then life got in the way - sick dogs, new dogs, work, etc. But, it's the thought that counts, right? Better late than never, right? So Mom, this quilt is for you!

I used fabrics from the Teatime Floral Collection by Lakehouse. I LOOOOVE Lakehouse.....
And, of course I made kits for you that you can find in the shop......
And I apologize for the less than fantastic picture of the quilt. I was home alone and it's pretty hard to take a picture of a big quilt when you're by yourself! And I have no patience to just wait for John to get home and help me. So, I tried several different methods and ended up with a somewhat, almost, kind of acceptable photo. And I'm not going to tell you what I did to get that picture. I certainly didn't stand on the dining room table to get that picture! Only a crazy person would do that! Nope - definitely not standing on the dining room table.

And hmmm....I just realized something. I probably should have just said this was a Mother's Day Gift. That would have made a lot more sense. But I'm not gonna lie to you wonderful people! Instead, I'll probably be talking about Mother's Day gifts in August.

So again, Happy Late Birthday Mom! I hope you like your quilt!

Happy Sewing,

P.S. It's called the Teatime Floral Circle Of Friends Quilt Kit

WOW!!!!!!! I can't believe how beautiful that quilt is and that you went to all that work for me - it is simply fantastic - and you are a beautiful and fantastic daughter and loving daughter to do that for me. I can't thank you enough, sweet daughter of mine. and i am "just guessing" - but i bet you stood on the dining room table to take that picture - i know you too well. and, yes, my first thought was "it's not my birthday". you know me too well, also. much love and i can't wait to get my quilt, mom
