My Moms First Quilt Top

My Mom has caught the quilting Bug I believe. My Mom is not a quilter ( okay - I need to rephrase that - WAS NOT a quilter). She knows how to sew - but she basically left that to her mom and to me. She is a writer - and a good one.


However - She has seen how important these quilts are to the soldiers and she wanted to get involved... I think she may be addicted now!


The top picture is the first quilt - it is a rail fence. I think it turned out pretty good! And I think she even had fun making it. Then she remembered the quilts that I teach the kids to make and wanted to do one of those - so voila - here it is! That my mom holding them - and I made my Dad jump in for good measure - just to prove he exists. At this moment in time he is wishing they built a bigger house. He says her quilting "stuff" is all over the place - and there is no room for his "stuff".
This is his "stuff" - a big dog named Hagen.. ( I really think it is he who owns the place and my parents just get to live there)
Oh - and she has even caught the fabric buying bug - we must give her tips to keep her stash in control..... hmmm
Have a great one!
