I wanted to make my mom a quilt for her 60th birthday.  She has loved quilts for many years and I thought this would be a great surprise for her!  Being a bit of a procrastinator (and being terrified I would mess it up!) I only had 10 days to learn how to quilt and make this project.  God bless good books!  I had a great 'first-time' quilting book that walked me through the process.

I did a simple single-patch quilt using some batiks in earth tones and patterns that my mom loves.  I then machine quilted in an echo pattern using monofilament thread on top (to hide my imperfect technique!).  I wanted to include photos of her 3 granddaughters, so I printed them on iron-on fabric.

Mom was very surprised!  Yay!

First time??  You did really well.  I am sure the addition of the pictures was a big hit!
