Mom's quilt

Now that it's finally arrived at its destination, I can share photos of the quilt I made for my mom for her birthday, although it didn't arrive in time. She lives in Norway and although I sent it two weeks before her birthday it only arrived a week and a half after her birthday.

The quilt measures 151cm x 186cm (60 x 73 inches) and features a stacked coin design in pink, turquoise, white, and brown.

The back is pink and white gingham.

I used my walking foot to quilt a chevron pattern.

It's bound in brown.

Of course I had to add a little embroidered label.

My mom loves the quilt, and I love thinking of her snuggling under it through the Norwegian winter.

  3. It's a beautiful and thoughtful gift!!!!! Norway is a loooong way from NZ, sniff sniff. My family immigrated to the US from Norway though it has been enough generations that I don't speak Norwegian. My mother's grandmother did. She tells some funny stuff about life with Grandma. We still make Fattigmann Bakkles for Christmas.
