Garden Stars progress...

Hi, It's me checking in with some Garden Stars progress. Me and my Mum have both gotten the main body of the quilt together, and here is a sneak peek. 

We have to take a small break from this quilt as we have decided to extend the sashing and we are also adding a green border( need a break from all that pink, LOL) and we had to place an order for the needed fabric.

In other news.... I have added a link to my " Dancing Daisies" tutorial which was originally posted on the ModaBakeshop.  I just recently finished quilting my second one. You can find a link to the tutorial here and in the tutorials tab at the top of the blog.

Hi, I'm Mum....

            Hi, I'm Mum from "Me and My Mum Quilting.   I fell in love with making quilts years ago when my daughter (the "Me" of this relationship) made a simple block quilt.  We quilt together almost every day, by Skype.

   We both have  subscriptions to the FatQuarterShop's SewSampler boxes, and we have been trying to decide on a pattern to use up some of the fabric we had received. Today, we started cutting the material for a quilt called " Garden Star".

 The fabrics are "Olive's Flower Market" and Kona's 2017 Color of the year. The pattern we are using is just perfect because it requires only 2 charm packs and a contrast color with some background.
"Garden Stars"  is a free tutorial from MSQC. We decided to use the Kona solid as the contrast because it matches the charm squares so nicely.  Here are the HST's I made as the first step in constructing this block, and the fabrics I am using for some 4-patches.

Welcome to Me and My Mum Quilting

Hi everyone it's "ME" (otherwise known as Cathy - the daughter in this dynamic duo) Thanks for visiting my new blog. My Mum and I have been quilting buddies for awhile now, since we made our first quilt together, (when she came to visit one summer in Alberta)Then for the 5 years we were living only minutes away from each other, and now. Even though we no longer live in the same province, we have managed to still work on quilt projects via video chat. (Thank goodness for technology!!) and whenever we get together in person you can bet we always have something Quilty underway.

This is a place for Me and My Mum to share our love of quilting, our thoughts and inspiration with each other and with you as well. I hope you will come to visit often and share what you might be working on too.
