    My Dear Mother's Quilt Pics

    My dear mother passed away last week (March 13, 2012), and she loved sewing,quilting, and other needle work. I wanted to post a couple of her quilts. She hand pieced and quilted them.

    The one of my mother sitting with the frame and quilting is when she was younger, and her grandson's were little. The one at the bottom is of her recently with my dad. In June they would have been married 60 years. Today dad gave me mom's serger that I know nothing about, but cherish it.

    Mom never took many pictures of her quilts at the right time. She sold many of them through the years, and about 5 years ago one to a state congressman, but those I don't have pictures of. I was always telling mom to let me get some pictures before they left.

    Condolences on the loss of your mother. Thank you for sharing her work with us. A very attractive lady, who was obviously a talented, prolific quilter and needlewoman.
