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.
