    Turned into my mother...

    Hello, I am new to the quilting board and will tell you a little about myself through a story.

    I was the baby of the family, was the last to leave home and was a little bit of a rebel.
    As I made my way in the world, I made a vow that I would NEVER be like my mother!

    Fast forward to me turning 40 and taking my first quilting class.
    As I started down the Quilting path, I found I had more in common with my mother.

    Now that I am past 50, I realize I am just like my mother except she does beautiful hand piecing that I don't seem to have time for.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    Welcome to the Board! I can only hope to be like my mother! I think of her often as I quilt, and now that I am in my 50s I wish that I listened to her more closely when she was in her 50s.

    Hello from michigan! Did we not all say at one time or another that we would be so diff from our mothers? I see more and more of her traits in me than I ever thought possible!

    Hello and welcome from southeastern Oklahoma. I have a lot of similiarities to my Mom and she passed away in 1988 at the age of 46. Somethings we just can't help. lol

    Hi.. and welcome from NY

    I wish I was more like my mom.. Even though she is not creative.. I take after my dad in that way.. My mom is awesome.. She is extremely kind, and thoughtful.. Every day I try to learn more from her.. I try to be as patient as she is.. I hope she will be around forever.. I feel like I never learned enough from my dad before he passed away at 84..

    Many of us have said this and I think we all do turn out somewhat like our mothers
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    Welcome Fritzer1. Perhaps your Mother was a bit like you in her earlier life and you always had a lot more in common than you are now realizing.

    You sound like me. My mother and I haven't had the best relationship and I always said I wouldn't be like her. My mother was a very talented seamstress, and was a dressmaker working from home. I'm the youngest of three too and it was practically a requirement that we all learn to sew. I sewed when I was first married and the kids were younger but just didn't have time and stopped. Almost two years ago I took a quilting class and have been working on quilting since. My mother has never put a quilt together but several years ago she started making quilt tops at her church,
    hand quilting the tops.

    I feel like I got my sewing ability from my mom, but I don't think I'll ever be as good as she was. She told me not too long ago that she never had problems reading a pattern. I certainly don't have that gift!! lol
