My mom and I completed my first quilt together 15 years ago (when I was about 10). When I saw Hangin' with Friends in the September/October 2012 issue of Love of Quilting, I knew it was the perfect quilt to make for her to celebrate her birthday. In some ways it was reminiscent of that first quilt so many years ago, as it was the first time I've been brave enough to work with raw edges and machine appliqué! I had so much fun making it, and my mom was tickled to get such a beautiful wall hanging.
