Six Word Saturday:
I’m so proud of my mama.
You met my mother a few months ago when Jake’s Sunday Post theme was Mother’s Day and last week I featured the beautiful birthday cake that my mum made for me. In this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge about lines and patterns I included one of my mum’s patchwork quilts that some people commented on and was inspired to take some more photos of her very impressive handiwork to show you all.
Happy Saturday everyone!
It is, isn’t it Skye!
Oh, my…..please tell her for me!! I was looking at them, and figuring out which room each would fit in in my house. lol
God bless you both….Have a delightful weekend! 🙂
What a super collection Georgia !
Love the extra over stitching on Pink quilt , and the Childs quilt has such a lot of work to the design – it must have taken ages .
Bravo to Mama 🙂
Thanks Poppy. Actually mum doesn’t do the quilting or over stitching pattern herself because she doesn’t have the right type of machine. All the grandchildren get their own eye spy quilt and mum enjoys finding the different pictures to put on it. I think it is a kind of therapy for her 😉
I do love the idea of eye spy quilts !
What constructive creative ‘therapy’ 🙂
What a clever mum you have. I was trying to pick a favourite, but I just can’t – they are all wonderful. I love the idea of the ‘I spy’ quilts for the grandchildren.
Oh yes Elaine, she is very clever and the I spy quilts are such fun!
Love the pink quilt – and your response to the photo challenge.
Those are some nice quilts. This kind of craftmanship is going to become harder and harder to find.
Thank you Wayne
I love the quilts. I have one made for me by my aunt when we got married. Unfortunately I can’t quilt.
What a special gift Judy
Absolutely, they are so beautiful, great artwork at hand!
Thanks a lot Karen
Gorgeous. The blue and white one would actually look wonderful in my bedroom! 🙂
I love the idea of an I SPY quilt.
I’m sure it would look good in a few places. Thank you
luv the pink one best
Thank you Gillena
Hours of patience, Georgia 🙂
I know Jo, there sure is.
She is very talented! They are beautiful!
Yes she is Tonya. Thank you
Patchwork is my passion, too, so I really enjoyed your pictures.
Oh I’d love to see some of yours Viv!
There’s lots on my blog – http://vivinfrance.wordpress.com/quilt-gallery/ and scattered about the poetry, and I have an album on the British Quilt List –
Those are really beautiful pictures! Your mom does lovely work.
Thank you Mlissabeth, I’ll tell her for you.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE quilts … these are gorgeous!!! The colors your mom used are wonderful.
I have a very special one made by my grandmother — using scraps from clothes she made me growing up. 😀
Thanks Becca, I love them too! Oh how special your quilt must be.
Such beautiful patchworks! A lot of hard work and lots of love must have gone into making them.
Yes, definitely a lot of love goes into each of them.
Beautiful quilts…I LOVE the pink one! She does such nice work!

Thank you Linda, yes it is lovely.
All of you are so kind! My gracious thanks to you all….especially Georgia for putting them up in the first place. Thanks honey! Creating with fabrics is very rewarding.
I know you love it mum!
Wonderful work of patience and creativity. I think I remember meeting your mother`s toe polish. 🙂
Thanks Lesley. Ah yes, the same colour as mine 🙂
What a gifted Mama you have, Georgia. I love that pretty pink one, and the children’s quilt is so beautiful. 🙂
gifted indeed.. lots of love and patience in these quilts..
She sure is gifted 🙂
Gorgeous works of art. I love quilts and have a great respect for anyone who quilts. I tried making one once. I got about 75 percent of the top done and then passed it on to someone with more patience for the task. Of course if I’d been using a machine instead of hand stitching I might have finished it.But then maybe not. Your Mom rocks.
She sure does rock Elizabeth! Some of these quilts are actually unfinished but she really enjoys doing it.
These are beautiful. I have several friends who quilt, and I so admire their eye for colour and design and attention to detail. Your mother has all of those – her work is lovely.
