Mom's been busy

Mom had two quilts from my instruction sheets to show me when I arrived on Monday. Here's the Strippie - this one is just too cute. She also finished quilting the Fish Quilt. She uses her regular sewing machine and decided that straight line quilting would be easiest - I think the quilt looks great!

I head home tomorrow morning. It will be good to see Keith and Chesty!

Both her quilts look great. The strippie quilts are so easy and look great, especially when you pick such cute fabric like your Mom did.

So glad to see some great straight line quilting, thanks for sharing. I am always looking for ideas on how to make "prettier" or more interesting quilting on my domestic machine. Love the look of your circles, loops and hearts quilting.
