A Quilt For My Mom

I finally finished my Mom's quilt. I did some free motion quilting on the middle section of it. I have not done that much of it so I am really happy that I didn't mess it up. I just did small parts of the middle section and tried to emphasize the field parts and did around the trees. You can enlarge the photos so you can see what I did.

I love the crinkly look that it has. I used an 80/20 binding. I straight line quilted around the side blocks and the borders. I used the barn fabric for the back but it was a bit narrow so I had to put the outer border fabric on the back as well, along with a label for her.

I am going to mail this out tomorrow. I am anxious for her to get it. She has that arthritis and gets so cold that she uses a blanket to cover up with when she sits and watches her movies, even in the summer time. I thought this would be a nice size for her to use. She loves barns and that is why I picked this fabric last fall when I saw it. I have a little left and may make her a table runner when I get a chance.
