Mother's Day Part 2

 I can reveal my presents for my mother. I made these two zip pouches and put kits of matching fabrics to make mini quilts designed by Camille Roskelley. I used a mini charm pack to make each zippered pouch.
 My mom likes to make mini quilts and they are preparing to go on a motor home trip until the end of July, so these small kits will be travel friendly. We spent the day together quilting of course.
I put together my last two Let It Snow blocks and pieced the whole quilt. Now, I have to get the back ready and pin it for hand quilting. We have had rainy, cold weather which makes me want to hand quilt!
 I mentioned to my teenager a couple of months ago that I needed some eye shadow, so she totally spoiled me with this gorgeous palette.
I had a great Mother's Day and I hope you did too!


  1. Just found you from another blog. So much inspiration! I love your patchwork zip bags and your Plus Tote! I downloaded the pattern for the long pincushion -- love that too. I'll be back when I have more time to read back blogs. Thank you! Have a happy week. Florence

  2. Love the bags you made for your Mum,the mini quilts will be interesting! Let it Snow is looking great...good to hear you were spoilt on Mothers Day!

  3. Lovely presents Tanya. Look forward to seeing your Let it Snow quilt.

  4. The gifts you gave to your Mom are so thoughtful... how perfect they will be for her travels.
    Let It Snow is very cute! Should be fun to hand quilt!

  5. I love the patchwork bags and just know your Mom was thrilled. The pattern with the umbrellas is cute.

  6. I wish I had someone to teach me in person how to make those bags.
    I don't do well with reading instructions with pictures or even watching youtube.
    I need hands on.
    I have a whole popcorn tin full of 2 1/4 inch squares and that would be something awesome to make.
    I also have several zippers laying around too.

  7. Your pouches are adorable, and such a thoughtful gift for your mother. The kits were a great idea, too.

  8. Offering small pouches with a project inside is a great idea! Very inspirational. Thank you!

  9. Such a great idea to include a little kit in the patchwork pouches! Nice to hear that you and your mom had a wonderful day together.

  10. What a lovely gift. Thanks for linking up to Inspire Us Thursdays!
