Description


I am going to attempt to hand quilt for the first time!!  I am making this wall hanging for my Mom...she's the one who taught me how to quilt, and I have been wanting to make her something for a really long time!!
 
Note:  This project is a family affair, despite the fact that I am sewing it alone.  There are 5 generations represented...
 
-My daughter helped select the fabric and layout
-I am making the project
-My Mom is the one I am making it for...she taught me how to quilt
-The machine I am using to make the top belonged to my Grandmother
-There is one piece of the border that is red with white hearts...the fabric belonged to my Great-Grandmother
 
Needless to say, there's lots of love in this wall hanging!!

I really like this one and what a great story behind it. Your mom is going to be thrilled. Daughter did a great job with picking out the fabrics

Thanks! Now I have to figure out what pattern I am going to use to hand quilt it. It will be my first time, so I don't want it to be too complicated...maybe stitch in a ditch??

how fun! I think stitch in the ditch would work really well.

Mouseinmypocket Thanks! I'm searching online for quilting ideas...it's so hard to decide!! I think it would be easier if it just had plain squares and then I could just outline them. Argh!

True

I love the history of your family that is "wrapped" up in the quilt and love the quilt as well.

Love the story! I hope you enjoy the hand quilting as much as I do!

Firetones So far so good!! I haven't mastered the "rocking" motion, but my own makeshift method seems to be getting the job done!!
