    My Dear Mother's Quilt Pics

    My dear mother passed away last week (March 13, 2012), and she loved sewing,quilting, and other needle work. I wanted to post a couple of her quilts. She hand pieced and quilted them.

    The one of my mother sitting with the frame and quilting is when she was younger, and her grandson's were little. The one at the bottom is of her recently with my dad. In June they would have been married 60 years. Today dad gave me mom's serger that I know nothing about, but cherish it.

    Mom never took many pictures of her quilts at the right time. She sold many of them through the years, and about 5 years ago one to a state congressman, but those I don't have pictures of. I was always telling mom to let me get some pictures before they left.

    Thank your husband for getting these up for you and thank you for sharing these special memories during this hard time. Remember what I said...one day/step at a time...I know your mother is happy that you have found quilting to keep you busy!

    I love how your mom mixed classics that the dresden in the lone star and the star in the log cabin..that is great!

    So sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is difficult I know. You will always miss her, but when it hurts too much you can wrap up in one of those beautiful quilts and think about all the love that went into each stitch. It's almost like a hug from above.
    Happy quilting, one stitch at a time

    My sympathies go out to you. I know only too well how that feels. Your mother did beautiful work! I am always so impressed by people who can hand piece and hand quilt. Very inspirational to you, I'm sure.

    wow she was a talented lady. Her /your quilts are beautiful. Every time you wrap up in one you will be getting a big warm hug from her. Sorry to hear about her passing. I'm betting that she is so proud that you are caring on where she has left off. God bless you and help you through your sorrow.

    Condolences on your loss. I too have lost my mum barely 6 months now and can understand your grief and pain. Her quilts are stunning, absolutely gorgeous. With time things will feel a little less painful but memories like this never fade away. Take care and best wishes.
