    I absolutely love the first quilt with all of the red. Can you tell me if she followed a pattern and the name of that pattern?
    Thanks.

    What a treasure your mother has created. Her, and yours, talents are remarkable.

    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Astonishing at any age! I love your Mom's joyful use of colors! Just amazed by her creative output and talent! I'm so glad that she is soaking up all the praise your thread has garnered for her, because she deserves it!

    Natalie, glad you are getting the names of the patterns. That first pattern (the last picture) that started your Mom on her Paper Piecing adventure is one I would love to make. Wouldn't it just make the greatest quilt for someone in the service who works with or flies jets?! That's what her gorgeous quilt reminds me of.. seeing the Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds fly in formation.

    Love all your Mom's quilts!

    I taught a paper piecing class last winter at the RV Resort we winter at. Well I also unleased a Paper Piecing demon. She just loves to paper piece and just finished doing a large piece. It is absolutely the best way to get sharp points.

    Way to go, Mom!!! I wish my mother had learned and taught me. My grandma was an avid quilter but passed when I was too young to appreciate such skill.

    Just wow. These are awesome.
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    Wow!
    There is hope I might be able to use up my stash before I die!
    Those are all amazing, but I especially like the last one. It has so much movement and an Escher-feel of things going in and out of space.
    Congratulations to you both in your skill and determination.

    Hi!! I've been trying to open this thread and get the pictures on my phone using my appalling internet connection for days. Today I finally got my DH to stop on the hard shoulder of the road out of Limerick today, so I could download using the fast broadband while we were still in tree city limits!!! Well worth the wait!!!! Your Mother is a marvel, please tell her all are fabulous!!!!

    WOW! They are all gorgeous. It's wonderful that she can still do things that she really enjoys. Hope I can at her age.
