A Quilt for Mom and a Day of Relaxation

How was your Mother’s Day? This year, I did a little planning ahead of time and made my mom a lap quilt with cute fabrics. The fabric has horses, horseshoes, paisley, and western stars (my mom is a cowgirl). I quilted it using a zigzag stitch for a hint of embellishment. She loved it!

I spent the whole day with my husband and parents, just enjoying the beautiful Colorado weather. My parents live in a rural area on a horse ranch. Here is the view we enjoyed from their front yard:

We watched the deer sneaking sips of water from the bird bath.

We brushed and fed the horses.

    What a cute idea for a western quilt! I emailed it to my college daughter who is a “horsey” girl & majoring in pre-vet.
