quilt?

My mum has a special birthday coming up and I really want to make her something special as she means so so much to me...


And I've been looking at all the lovely quilts out there in blogland at the moment...


And so I thought I would have a go at making my own! It will only be small, although I did spend yesterday evening measuring my bed and working out patterns and material amounts and time scales, but then I realised I was being a little bit ambitious, especially as I have never made any kind of quilt before...


I'm quite excited really, because even though it could all go horribly wrong I'm looking forward to having a go and seeing what happens! So we'll see...

I can't wait to see what you make! The cathedral window is my first quilt, too, and I'm realising that with some concentration, you really can do it.....I hope those bird and flower designs will make the cut - it looks lovely....
good luck!

Can't wait to see it, Sarah. When I receive handmade gifts from my friends, in addition to the object, I see the amount of time they've spent on it, which knowing their schedules, is in itself such a loving gift. Your mother, no doubt, will love it.
