My Mom is a quilt lady. I caught the quilting disease from her. She has packs and piles of quilts around her house, some she’s made, and some are family quilts and antiques she’s collected here and there. So I thought I’d post a few because they are too pretty not too share. Plus lets face it, I’ve got nothing else to post about.
She made this circle quilt a few years ago. Each circle is pieced with raw edges so with use it gets a cute shabby appearance. Except its been hanging on the wall for 3 years….so when it gets used, it will get cute and shabby.
This red and white one I LOVE. Its all hand quilted heavily. It’s an antique, and obviously made by someone with more patience than anyone under this roof. There is a similar quilt but yellow instead of red in the final (boo-hoo) issue of Country Home that I've been staring at. There is definitely something like this in my quilting future. Except not hand quilted.
I love a vintage wedding ring quilt. Especially this one made with vintage feed sack fabrics and hand quilted. I’m hoping she won’t notice if this disappears accidentally into my suitcase. Not likely.
And last but not least this flower quilt made by Mom. The pattern is from Buggy Barn Quilts I believe. Our friend quilted this on a long arm and I love how she left the petals of the flowers un-quilted. It gives them a raised, almost appliqué appearance. This one is on my (guest) bed so I get to look at it every night.
