I should try quilting for my Mother as well. However, I think that she knows how quilt more than me. I'm not really an expert in quilting, and I only know the basics of it. I learned back when I was still in elementary. We were taught in our home economics subject on the basics of quilting.
I'm sure your Mom would love any quilting project you gave her when its made with love! However, if you would like a refresher, we have ongoing quilting classes for all levels. Also if you have some inspiration on something, come in and see myself or Cathy and we may be able to help you decide on a project that you would be comfortable with.
