My Mum turned 80 in August. What do you get for your Mum when she turns 80?
What do you get someone who has most things and has just decided to start decluttering after 30 years in the same house?
What do you get for someone who, after a few hard years, decides to buy herself a soft top sports car a week before her birthday?
What do you get, or make, for someone when there is only a week left until their birthday?
Why you make a Scrabble mini quilt of course!!
My Mum and I, and indeed all the children, often play Scrabble so it seemed appropriate.
My daughter, 12, now plays with my Mum, 80!
I loved the way this turned out in the end .... although part way through I was beginning to worry it wasn't going to look as good in real life as it did in my head!
I used twin needles to attach the white grid fabric and decided to use those as the quilting lines aswell. It gave a zig zag appearance on the back of the quilt, which I actually quite like - speed, efficiency and good looks too!
Now the question is what to make her for her 81st?!!
Linking up to Finish it Up Friday today.
