For those that follow my blog or my little sister's clothing blog, you probably get a sense how family is a big inspiration for us, and our family is close and a big part of our lives.
Well like any family, our mom is the bomb and such a big influence in our lives.
She taught us to sew and showed us girls can do anything, like use power tools or chop down trees.
My mom is uber talented, and I'm pretty sure if we got in a fight she could totally kick my butt despite being near the senior citizen meal discounts.
So I just want to brag about her and share her latest quilt, which she made for my niece, Katie.
My niece (her oldest grandchild) turns 8 next month and on a visit asked Grandma to make her a silky quilt for her bed. So my mom went over the top and made her the coolest quilt.
Katie loves the Tinkerbell / fairy shows and my mom made this quilt and all those details are mostly 3D fabric folding off the surface of the quilt. The flowers are mostly manipulated ribbon and the whole scene is just incredible in person.
My mom made my son his airplane quilt, which you might remember a few years ago.
I stole some of her pictures from our family blog to show you:
My mom had some stickers she printed to use as a template for the fairies. All the details of their faces and wings are all sewn by machine and are so precise. My free motion sewing is like the Grinch's sewing compared to my mom.
Just really great, I hope it blows Katie's little 8-year-old mind.
The whole back is satin, per her "silky" request.
