Seldomly does a quilt turn out better than I planned. This one surprised me. I ordered this fabric from sew mama sew awhile back, and wasn't quite sure what i was going to do with it. Then I realized that my mother's birthday was coming towards me at a fierce pace! A strippy quilt was in order! And here it is. I adore the colors and the size. And I adore my mother. Happy birthday mom. These bright and cheery colors remind me of you!
