My first quilt.


Mom's Birthday Quilt- Happy 60th birthday.

So this is the quilt I made for my mother for her 60th birthday.  I got the batik panels from this booth at the Sewing Expo.  The backing is this AMAZING Italian shirting cotton.  I learned most of the techniques off the internet.  I really love freezer paper after doing this quilt because it can be used in so many way in sewing.  With this quilt all of the circular applique around the characters I did using freezer paper and the six minute circle applique.  My next experiment with freezer paper is going to be printing fabric with my printer… I will keep you posted.  Does anyone have any tips??

My mom was here over the Memorial Day holiday and we went camping at Cama Beach on Camano Island, WA.  It was nice and relaxing and it did not even rain that much!
