a sensory mat for my Mama

A wonderful gift!  I was in the middle of making DMIL one when she passed away.  Found the blocks after all was done.  Yours is really pretty.

the mat is lovely.  And right up your alley too, with your love of embellishment and alternative type processes.

I haven't sewn much at all in weeks, not since I finished DS's Koi/shark quilt.  He did like the quilt, took it back to school with him.  Though his first comment was "I don't like fish" - ha!  I have finished up 2 baby quilts for 2 baby showers this weekend, both for friends of DD.  Now I'm not sure what to work on.  I need to flip through my idea "notebook"  (electronic file) and see what strikes my fancy.  I did work on a little soft baby book that Judy A. tagged me on several weeks ago.  I may do a few more just to have on hand (posted in a separate thread).

Hello Everyone!

I haven't done much sewing since a 4-day marathon at Kiki's just before Christmas.  I have a lot to work on but haven't had the energy or motivation.  I need a kick in the behind to get going again!

But I did finish 2 tops along with the backings from 2013 and 2014 and those are now at the guild's stash.  They will be finished by the guild and then given to charity.  I also donated a Round Robin top that will also be given as charity.

They will all make nice quilts.  I especially like the last one.

**fantastic** job!   That's a great sense of accomplishment!

Thank you !  The first two are from my Secret Sisters back in 2013 and 2014.  I just did the sashing.  The larger one with the Antique Tile is a round robin top.  I did the center and then 5 friends from all over the US did the borders.  When I did the center, it was intended for a child, so bright and happy.

All three quilts are absolutely stunning!  I don't think I could pick a favorite.  I really like how you can piece the top and have your guild quilt it to give to charity.  Great idea.  I'm.more of a piecer than a quilter so I love that plan.   Hope you get your sewing mojo back soon--sometimes we just need a break from it.
