    my mom has just recently gotten back into quilting, she can turn out a top a month since she has nothing else to do but she says sometimes it makes her sad because she misses her mamma so bad, they spent a lot of time together making quilts. I told her to concentrate on the good memories. Here are a few of her tops and a couple of Grandma's

    I think said this one was called Cumberland, it was in a magazine

    Those are beautiful!

    My first reaction to the last quilts description was "JUST flying geese?"

    What a feast for the eyes with so much variety of colors and blocks! You are certainly one talented family, it must be in the genes! It's hard to decide but I think the building blocks' quilt is my favorite. Thank you for posting these beautiful quilts. I am always filing away ideas for future quilts in my brain.......
