Yesterday was a quilty day with my mom......
A semi-local quilt museum was doing an exhibit at a local retirement center, so mom and I decided to go. It was amazing to see all the antique quilts and hear their stories! We saw quilts of all types, even one that was fairly new from a local male quilter! (There was not one man at the exhibit though, LOL).
After the exhibit, I went to her house to baste my kaleidoscope quilt:
then, noticed her Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that I think she started as a teenager and finished just a few years ago. I had forgotten that I had given her scraps from several quilts I had made. The flower print in the star centers from this one:
and the main flower print in this one (which resides on my bed below the comforter ALL the time):
and also another print from a mauve/blue log cabin quilt I made early 1991. For some reason, I don't have a pic of that quilt. My younger son uses it on his bed under his ''money quilt'' though :)
It was really fun to see those scraps used in my mom's wonderful hexagon quilt though! I'll have to get a pic of her quilts next time I think of it when I go there. She has an amazing DWR that she hand-pieced and hand quilted too. It's just amazing!
Anyhow, I came home practically meeting the UPS man at the front door. He had a box with this little stack of beauties for me!
I am going to quilt the kaleidoscope quilt today, then my focus will be on this stack of lovliness! EEEEEE!
your kaleidoscope quilt is so lovely. you did such an amazing job.ReplyDelete
