Happy Birthday, Mom!

photo[1]

This is a close-up of one of my favorite things in the world – my Ginger Jar wall quilt my mom made me.  The applique and quilting are gorgeous.  My mom seems to effortlessly bring joy and love and beauty to everything she touches.  I aspire to be my mom – to be as kind as generous as her, to make my kids feel as loved and supported as she always makes me feel, to set a table as well as her, and to quilt as well as her.  She is and always has been my inspiration.  Happy Birthday, Mom!

I made her this triple-zip pouch from this tutorial.  The fabric is gorgeous.  My top stitching and zipper sewing need some work.  But my mom loved it –  I know my mom will love anything and everything I make for her.  I am very happy that I have that kind of mom.
