    My mom embroidered a lot of blocks some years ago....I put together 2 quilt tops for her - and still there were 13 blocks remaining - she told me to keep them for myself - and so I made a quilt for me with 12 of the blocks - and the 13th became a pillow cover - I thought I would share this project with you - just finished the binding last week...this is something that I will treasure forever - so happy to have my mom's embroidered blocks in these.....

    Pillow cover is 16" x 16" - I need to get a filler for this one....

    I thought a back with ties would fit the look well....

    You are so fortunate! My mom used to do the "artex" paints when I was younger. I have no surviving examples or I would totally have made them into a quilt.
    What a treasure! It's beautiful!

    You have an amazing heart, dear friend.. You are such an inspiration to me in what you create, and for what purpose.. These, from your mom, are such a tribute to the love you have for her.. You are incredible, and I am glad to " know you"..

    What beautiful blocks!! Sooo much work has gone into them - I like that you kept the blocks the main focal point by using a muted fabric to piece them - wonderful job!! cheryl :-D

    This is a beautiful treasure. I like the way you did sashing and borders. You made the embroidery the "star" of your quilt.
