    the back sides are even neat as a pin...I sure would like to sit at her elbow for awhile. Thank you for showing the backs. =)

    Those are beautiful. I'm making a GFG right now (and for the last 8 yrs.) so I know how time consuming it is. So nice to have a mom to help do some of it for you and at her age "it's a wonderful thing".
    It's going to look fantastic on completion.

    They are really pretty, but I have to say that they don't look like the ordinary ones I've seen. They have a modern, but traditional feel. Love them!!

    Very nice workmanship, seeing how neatly the backs are done make me think twice about hurrying up to get something out of the way. Lovely colors.

    Lucky you to have your Mom to help you. They are so pretty, and the workmanship is great. That will make a very pretty quilt.

    WOW she does beautiful work. Wish I could get my 77 year old mother interested in quilting or any other hobby. I have tried, no luck.

    Ya know, that hodge podge arrangement looks like a garden with flowers overlapping.I like that non geometric grouping a lot. Almost like scattering bulbs in a natural setting in the yard. It's a fresh idea on an old standard. It's crying landscape quilted wall hanging to me. More flowers, just add them on, make a companion panel. How does your mother want you to use them?

    I don't know what that pattern is but, it is absolutely beautiful. You are so lucky to still have your mother and she seems to be doing well. God Bless you both.
