My Mother Marilyn - the Awesome Quilter

My mother had thee smallest hand quilting stitches!  Have a look at her awesome applique work!  When she would see my hand quilting needle - she would say I was using a stick!  My mother Marilyn gave up quilting a number of years ago, but I now have some gorgeous water color pictures hanging in my house.  Check out the first picture of the frog - it hangs over my fireplace!

Hi there Linda hon, I've never seen this quilt before, where is it hanging? Your Mum is so talented. It's hard to imagine someone giving up quilting, but when I see her wonderful paintings I can really understand.
Great chattering last night - super fun!
