Mother's Double Dutch Quilt Part 5

I made it this far today without having to rip out any seams.  That's a good thing.

Mother's Double Dutch Quilt Part 4


Today was much more than just a day of sewing.  My 93y/o mother made it up the stairs with help from my Big Bear, and worked with me on her quilt.  We shared stories and laughter and she enjoyed being involved in the making of her Double Dutch Quilt.  It was a special day, with family stories from her childhood that she also shared ... and I share with you.

Mother's Double Dutch Quilt Part 3


This post will have you piecing like a pro, trimming for perfect squares, and creating beautiful full quilt blocks!  It always feels so good to complete the first quilt block.  It's a confidence builder that I didn't mess up on my seams or cutting along the way!

Mother's Double Dutch Quilt


It's been several years since I enjoyed busy hands in my sewing studio and I've missed it.  I am making a beautiful blue and white "Double Dutch" quilt for my 93y/o mother for the holidays.  I've got to start early if I am going to get it finished!  Follow along as I make this quilt!
