Mommy Made Me Do It

I had no intention. None whatsoever, to make myself a little quilt for Christmas.
My mother made me do it.
How, you ask? This.
Santa Claus on a scooter, that's how.

 Seriously, how am I supposed to resist this? You guys know I ride a fire engine red Vespa, right? I'm a sucker for all things scooter, and my mom knows it.

There I am innocently working away at my office yesterday, and my mom sends me a picture from her cell phone of this fabric. She was at JoAnn's... with coupons! I was powerless.

Twenty minutes later I was with her, and we were picking coordinating fabrics.
Gah! As if I didn't have enough to do...
I blame Mom.

Isn't it the cutest though?!? I think I'm going to quilt this by hand, just by outlinging the girls and santas with a running stitch in coordinating thread. Should be pretty fast... I hope.

Wish me luck!
oxo,
Lisa

NO WAY!!!!!! Oh Lisa...that is the cutest fabric! And the green polkadots? Get outta here! You'll have it whipped up in a flash, because you won't be able to put it down :) Your Mum sounds like she's pretty cute too :)

Sounds like the thrill I get when I come across a new teacup or teapot theme fabric. :-)

The scooter fabric is great and I really love the coordinating fabrics and colors. I think your quilt will be terrific.

Lucky you to have such a sweet enabler Mom!!! The fabrics are wonderful. Did I know you ride a Vespa? Can't remember, but that's way cool.
