A Good Team

Over the weekend I went to my cousin's engagement party and gifted him a quilt that was a joint project between my mom and I. Two weeks ago she dug a finished top out of her (apparently extensive) pile and mailed it to me. Then I got backing, batting, binding, and quilted it up last week. Finished size is approximately 65" square, so a nice lap size.

Apparently my mom made this as a block of the month type thing

My mom's piecing is way better than mine, probably because she's had a lot more practice. However, she doesn't do most of her own quilting and she never does FMQ so I'm better on that end. Basically we're a perfect team.

For quilting, I did a combo of straight line and FMQ in a variegated tan/cream thread

I have to admit I don't love the color scheme of this quilt, the fabrics aren't really my style. But I do like the layout. My mom actually said she wanted it back after I sent her this pic of the quilting. So yeah, for a last minute gift, I think we did pretty damn well ^_^
