Beautiful quilts that show her feelings at different times in her life. Quilts take on a life of their own based on what one is feeling at the time. She has a wonderful sense of color and style. These quilts, finished, would bring thousands of dollars. Such unappreciative adult children. I have four sons. All too supportive who fight over my quilts. Each one has six or eight quilts but always want the one I am working on. Do what makes you happy in your final years. I am 76 and I do and say what I want, never to hurt anyone, and I live my final years doing what I love and it the house is a mess, they come help me clean so I can get back to quilting. Unfortunately, I do not have a longarm so I must send mine out to a lovely lady in VA, that is very economical. God bless you for your gift and sharing with us!

I was thinking about doing the same thing - removing my dining room furniture and using that room for my sewing room.. Those quilts are lovely! Can't pick a favorite, but love the tractor one.
