What To Do With One Quilt Block

Hi Paulette, 

We certainly can help you finish this quilt for you. However, wouldn't you like to finish it yourself so you can present it to your Mom as a handmade quilt you made just for her?

If you haven't discussed the quilt project with your Mom yet, take this opportunity to involve her in your project. If she is a quilter herself, she may appreciate discussing the project with you. Maybe you can ask her about the size of the handmade quilt she would like, the color of the quilt backing and binding, maybe even what kind of batting. Telling someone will also help keep you on task.

Does your mother quilt?  My mother was a great seamstress and to this day I can hear her in my mind giving me advice about something I am making.

If you have only one block finished and don't want to continue, make it into a throw pillow. Personalize it with custom embroidery with your Mom's name and a favorite quote. Choose a backing that compliments her home decor so she can easily incorporate it in her home.

Let me know what you decide to do!
