    Nervous...2nd quilt in the wash

    This is the quilt for my mom...approx 60"x75". Had a little issue with the backing, it shifted while putting the sandwich together and I didn't realized until after I had the binding attached. It was just one corner so the binding is alittle tight in that corner but the rest did fine. Now I hope it stays together. I am always worried it will fall apart when I wash it.

    Will update with a picture after it is dried...and hopefully still together!

    Well some of the backing pulled out from the binding so I will have to fix that but other than that, it stayed together. lol

    Well, I hope I fixed the problems, it is being washed again to make sure. But here are some pics before the 2nd wash. It is by no means perfect but my mom will love it because I made it for her.

    Front:



    Back: The middle block says "A mom's love is like a quilt on a rainy day" Love, Sabrina and Ashlee. Then I let my daughter draw on it.

    Your mother will love it . . . . because it was made with love . . . specially for her.

    Thanks everyone! After the 2nd wash, there were just about 2 small spots that needed fixing! So I am done! It is laying in the guest room ready for her visit this weekend!

    Thanks, she is my little bit!

    And mom is excited about seeing the quilt this weekend. She doesn't know about the back part of it.
