Six Word Saturday: Patchwork

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!

  1. 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 😉

  2. 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. 😀

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
