    I thought I would share with you some pictures of quilts made from my mother's embroidered quilt blocks. She is 88 and going strong.

    You are so luck to have such beautiful quilts that your mother embroidered she does nice work.

    Thanks for oohing & aahing.

    Yes mom embroiders by hand. She is so fast that there are 3 of us girls she gives blocks to. We can't keep up with her so we asked her to take a break and make us each a tablecloth.

    Now she is working on tops for our grandchildren.

    Here are some more.
