A Quilt for Mum

It was my Mums birthday last week, and I was a bit stumped as to what to give her this year. Its getting a little tricky as she seems to have most of the things she wants/needs.  So I decided to make her a quilt. A gift from the heart if you see what I mean. Its not a large quilt (I forgot to measure it, oops) and took around 20 hours to make.  It was my first attempt at free motion quilting. Not perfect at all, but I did enjoy it and will definitely be finishing my other quilts in my cupboard very soon, now I have gained my confidence a bit with my new sewing machine. Please excuse my display material, I was in a wee bit of a rush.

Obviously, there had to be a card too. I have really scaled down my card making supplies so was quite chuffed with this.
