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!

Quilt-A-Long!

I am having fun working on a Quilt-a-long.  I cut over the weekend a bag of wine fabrics and other scraps that were left over from a quilt.  I thought I would use it as my leaders and enders project, but yesterday I could not put it aside.  See my four rows assembled.

Please join my Scrap Squad friend Dionne's list for the Quilt-a-long.  You will find Nann's Spectacular tutorial on her blog.
