    "tip a few" quilt

    That's what mom has named this quilt she made. I quilted it for her on my LA. It is 72"x78". I used Hobbs polydown, Lava thread and bottom line thread and I did an edge to edge design. She is giving it to someone for Christmas and I'm sure they will love it. She is 82yo as some of you know already. She still does beautiful work! She is working on applying the binding in one picture. I just love her!!! Enjoy the pictures....Dee

    Normally tumbler block quilts don't float my boat, but this I LOVE!! I love her colors, the piecing is impeccable and your mom's sense of humor is to die for with naming the quilt "tip a few". Your swirl quilting is the perfect finish. An all around winner for sure.

    Feline Fanatic, I'm the same way about tumbler block quilts, but I do like looking at this one. Agree with all your other comments, too, so won't repeat them.

    Great work, DeeBoopers' Mom, and you, too, DeeBooper!

    I sew love it when I see families that pass down skills to their offspring. I mother (now 90 yo) sewed for many years while we were growing up. My 3 sisters and I all learned at an early age to sew and we still get together although we live far apart and have 'sewing soiree's'.
