I created this layout of my mum and oldest daughter Sammy. Sammy had her 21st this year and my mum and family came down to celebrate with us. My mum had a special gift for her. She had spent MANY hours making a crazy quilt for her our of velvet. My mum did not have a sewing machine at the time and she hand stitched the whole quilt together and THEN she added embroidery stitches to every patch. Talk about labour of love.
So I created a layout of mum finishing off the quilt on my sewing machine and then the very special time when Sammy received the quilt xox
Memory Maze had the perfect chipboard to complement my layout. A reel of cotton with needles. I used metallic rubs and white pen on this. I then threaded cotton around it to make it look real.
I added the wee hearts to show the love in these photos, again I kept it simple and just coloured it white.
Here you can see the pride in my mums face. This was the last part of the quilt. Finished after many hours of love! I added a needle to the flowers with thread and some more hearts. The fancy stitches in the background are a stitch my mum showed me how to do, and a did on a couple of the patches. I wanted to added some sort of stitching to the layout.
The last chipboard I added was the scissors which I coloured with pen. mums scissors were red 🙂
I am going to get this layout framed and send to my mum.
I love my Mum, Happy mothers day, I wish I could be there to give you a big cuddle.
