My Mom's Quilts

Today I am going to share some talent that my Mom has and that is making quilts.  Yes - my mother is a very talented lady.  Not only does she quilt, she sews, crochets and knits (she has helped me with a knitting project that I have been working on for quite awhile now).

Let's start with the lime and blue color quilt below.  I love this one with the vibrant colors and fun pattern.




Cogwheels Pattern


Pennsylvania Fieldstones Pattern





My mom also initials the back of some of her quilts



Summer Cottage Pattern -- I love the vibrant colors in this one....

Check out the Vintage Tie Quilt below.  This was made by my mother's grandmother. My great grandmother made all of us (my sisters and brother) one.  This is something I will always cherish!  Tie quilts were made from scraps of fabric and then tied with a type of thread.




Here is another vintage quilt below.  This was my mother's as a child.  I love the pastel soft colors on this one.  The back of the quilt is lined with grain sacks.





Thimbleberries Pattern


Holiday Quilt - below - love the reds, greens, turquoise in this piece.  The border has a holiday motif added too!

Blitz Pattern with Moda fabric




Well this is just a small selection that I have featured.  Yes she does have many more and still quilting more!  I love them and how she has made so many different patterned ones too!





Mom, thanks for letting me share your beautiful talent and collection of quilts today!

**All of my mother's quilts are machine stitched and the batting and backing are sent out to a local lady who quilts with a longarm machine.

  4. Your mom has a beautiful collection of quilts. I have some admiration for someone like your Mom. My mother also does quilts, crocheting, knitting, and sewing. I guess I missed that talent....LOL
