My Mother wanted to play checkers, instead I got her engaged in a confetti art quilt

After breakfast while the dogs frolicked and the men (brother and sons) cooked dinner, I got my mom engaged in a confetti quilt. Once she understood the over all concept she was engaged. Now she will have to make several trips back to finish it, I wonder if she will be needing a sewing machine of her own? Naw, probably not,  she hates sewing and confetti is just cutting, she has some design ideas though. My maternal grandmother was a serious sewer/quilter, I learned everything from her. My mother on the other hand hated sewing, really hated it, well of course she did she had a worthless never kept the tension right, cheap piece of (insert many bad words here....)  for a machine, No Wonder she hated it! But I have plans for her, yep, we start with the cutting, then the design, get the daughter to do the sewing/quilting, then who knows maybe she'll talk me into helping her paint her red white and blue bedroom. She is painting a flag on one wall, I'll help with the others and make the star quilt.

Whipped cream for the dogs! 

Yep they love it! 

Fabric selection for confetti 

Original background color, I was wanting orange for my wall in the kitchen, my mother decided to go for blues, she has a plan, something about trees and horses and a rainbow.

Oma has the blue side, I am still going for orange for myself

We are moving right along
