My Mom's Birthday Treat!

Over Christmas I have been watching a ton of YouTube videos on quilting tricks, patterns, tutorials etc. I came across Missouri Quilt Company's YouTube page!! Seriously these ladies are awesome! Some amazing tricks and I just couldn't wait to try some. I went shopping with my husband and kids on New Years Eve and when my hubby and kids decided to have a nap in the car I took the opportunity to shop solo in the Quilt Store. I grabbed enough fabric for 2 finished quilts and 1 quilt top! Hello late Christmas gift ;) I purchased this fabric I used to make this fun quilt! I love it!
I fell in love with this easy, yet looks difficult quilt pattern X's & O's This lady makes this look too easy, so I decided to try it! I purchased Oasis by 3 Sisters for Moda! Super fun!

I downloaded the pattern at this link under the video!

Here is the finished Quilt!! I love the way it turned out!
My second free motion project! It gets easier as you do more of it, but still slightly nerve wracking! 
 I wrote out with a fabric safe pen Proverbs 31:10 25-30 and a little Birthday message!
We put our home on this old vacant lot and this fence is along our back yard. It wont be there come spring but it is fun to take pictures with.

 On the snow! I just love the stipple free motion pattern, it is easy, and when you wash the quilt it puckers up the fabric and the quilt looks vintage! It is amazing!!

I called my mom to come over and grab the quilt this morning. Adalie hid behind the couch and when she came in the door we said Surprise! Happy Birthday! She absolutely loved it and I am thrilled! (even may have teared up a little) I owe a lot to my mom, she is a very special person! She is who influenced my love for sewing, crafting, scrap booking, card making and quilting! She is a very crafty person as well and it is a fun common interest we share!  She is amazing, kind hearted and very loving! The best mom, an amazing grandma and a great friend! I love you mom! I hope you enjoy this x's and o's quilt. It will wrap you in love and plenty of hugs and kisses! xoxo
Thanks for stopping by!
