Mom's Quilts

Just thought I'd share some of my mother's quilts.

I love the strong winter colors in her scrapalcoholic quilt.

I didn't get a good picture of her borders, but they really finish the quilt off well.

Her strings quilt seemed extra heavy when we made up the sofa bed. When she gave me the pattern I then understood. She used an 8 1/2" fabric base for each block. The extra weight and flannel backing made a perfect winter weather quilt when we stayed with them in December.

My Mom is a prolific quilter who makes good use of her scraps. I was glad to know that she has kept a few quilts for herself since she has given away more than I can count.
