Thursday Ten Plus One

Mom made a quilt for a friend who asked for "a quilt for the bath." Mom wanted to use her patchwork letters, so when she heard that, she had an idea. She bought these fabrics because they looked watery:

And she saw this fabric with the ducks, which she thought was very cute. The idea that had popped into her head was "Rub A Dub Dub". She would make a quilt with those words and the little ducks.
Then she started sewing. First, the word RUB.
but when she put it next to one of the duckies she wasn't so sure. But she kept going:
And once she put this "Dub" next to the rest, she really knew it just didn't look right.

She really liked the ducks and thought they were kinda fun, so she decided to make the letters over using blue background, and then she got the idea to make the ducks peep through the letters.
It made the sewing a little bit more complicated, but Mom thought it was "over the top" and she loved it, so she kept going. She made quite a mess.But the little quilt was looking much better.Mom finished it up, and quilted it in watery looking waves,using fabric that looked like bubbles.

Here it is, the finished Rub-a-Dub Quilt.
Mom sent it to Mrs. Chickenfoot, who just loves it, and yes, it is hanging in the bathroom.

This is the quilt Mom got in return. Isn't it beautiful?

Mom has been working on the Holiday Cards list, and I haven't been posing lately, so that's why there are only 11 pictures today instead of 13.

That and she's still working for that stupid servant.

Your Mom is very, very talented and creative. Mommy is lucky if she can figure out how to hang a picture properly...

Angus' Mom says: I love the duckies! Painstaking, that's what that is! Painstaking effort and it turns out so beautifully! I like the round quilt, too, very pretty.

We saw the quilt over on her quilting blog, and thought it was wonderful over there. We also love the round quilt. Very creative.
