    Yes, she does do a great job!
    And yes, her quilts still exist!

    Oh Thanks for sharing your Mom’s lovely work! I agree 100% with your statement about quilts in hiding. I see the most wonderful quilts at our guild meetings and trying to take a photo is like trying to get a photo of Nessie or BigFoot…it’s always blurry and out of focus.

      Hahah! The Nessie comment made me laugh out loud! It’s almost like ‘if I don’t snap a pic, I’ll never see this again!’

    Your mom’s quilts are beautiful! I love her quilting on the log cabin one. Both quilts are fabulous!

    I really like the free-form log cabin and will have to try this too. It’s soooo cool that your mom shares your passion. I am the mom— and would love to have my daughters quilting with me!! I’ll have to share this blog with them.

      I agree, it is so much fun to share something that you love with someone that you love. I hope you convert your daughters!

    Thanks for sharing, Shea! I’ve seen (and LOVED) the cross quilt before but I don’t remember Mary’s Log Cabin…I love it too! So…does your sister quilt too???

      You have a good memory, Mary Anne! She didn’t show the log cabin one because it was already gifted to the baby. Maybe she will have to borrow it back for one night! My sister doesn’t quilt. She has made a quilt and I think she has great design ideas, but (so far) she’s not into sewing. She’s the jock in the family, so if I could somehow make quilting a competitive sport, I am sure she’d get into it! Ha!

    I just love these two quilts….especially the Liberated Cross, of course. I really MUST make another one and I so like Mary’s colors. I’m remembering that our sister had dibs on that quilt…did she get it?

    How nice that you are able to show your Mom’s hard work when she doesn’t blog. i guess this really hit a chord with me. Some of us that quilt don’t choose to blog. I love reading about what other quilters do and seeing the wonderful combinations of fabric usually on my lunch hour at work. When i am not working, i cook and take care of my home and husband. Then i make time to sew and quilt. Frankly i spend enough time on the computer all day that when i come home at night, the last thing i want to do is boot up the computer. It would cut into what ever free time i have to sew. i am a non-blogger by choice and will remain that way.

      I hear you! There are times when I am working to select pics and write posts where I think, “Oh, how I would rather be sewing!!”
