a quilt for my Mom

I made my Mother a small lap quilt for Christmas this year.
After her father passed away we had his bathrobe hanging in the closet for several years. 
I used the flannel bathrobe and some red, yellow and white flannel.
I used a sketch that she had made of him in the 80s as a pattern and emroidered it in red thread.
It has been getting used alot so you'll have to excuse the wrinkles!

My favorite scene in Superbad is the opening credits where the silhouettes dance.
As soon as I saw it I wanted to make freezer paper stencils silhouettes.
I traced it right off the screen and then blew the image up with the copy machine.
I made and gave four of these sweatshirts for Christmas and they were well recieved!
