A Quilt For My Mom

A special surprise for my Mom

Loved sewing up this quilt as a surprise for my mom for last Mother’s Day.

Yes a bit behind with this post but the quilt was a happy surprise.

I usually knit her cardigans, but that she said she has so many already. So a Quilt this time was a real surprise she said. My co-workers told me I just have to put a label on it to, to make it extra special. So with their expert help I was able to use one of the embroidery machines and add this note to the quilt.

The special Label that I added to the blanket after it was all done.

Eine Überraschung für meine Mutt’ für den letzten Muttertag. 

Ja ein bisschen hinten drein bin ich schon mit diesem Post. Doch die Decke war eine schöne  Überraschung.

In der Regel stricke ich meinem Mutt’ immer Strickjacken, doch wenn ich frage was ich ihr stricken darf? Sagte sie, “sie hat schon so viele und weiss nicht wann sie die alle anziehen soll”…lach.

This is the flower pattern we quilted the Patchwork Blanket with. For the backing I used a nice Flannel to make it soft.

So ein Quilt dieses Mal war eine echte Überraschung. Als meine Kolleginnen die Decke sah meinten sie ich muss nur noch ein Label darauf nähen. Also mit Hilfe von Experten hatte ich dann einen schoenen “Label” der dir Patchwork-Decke richtig perfect macht. 

Love the colours
