Stomps of Love

This is my mom's Christmas present...and, is 3 months late but I am pretty sure she will still like it.

I saw this bathmat tutorial featured in the Sew Mama Sew Handmade: Holidays Blog in 2007. Since the moment I saw it I KNEW I would make it for my mom. The tutorial comes from the Montessori by Hand blog. Meg did a great job with this one. Unlike the tutorial suggests I actually used new fabrics to create a new color scheme for my parent's Master Bath at their house in Ocean Shores. I wanted to make it special and personal so for the feet the outlines are of all the grandkids feet (with their names embroidered in them so she will know whose is who). Since this was not our year to actually see Summer and the kids I had her outline the kids and send them up to me. This project held a lot of firsts for first quilt piecing, hand embroidery, and topstitching to quilt the outline of the feet (don't look close at those...can definitely tell I am a I am SO happy with how this turned out and cannot wait to finally give it to my mom next weekend!
