As I have mentioned in this blog before, my Mom was an amazing quilter. When she returned to the art in the early 1970’s, she started making quilts for my “hope chest”.
This was the first quilt that she made……
It is a fun quilt for me to look at because ALL of the clothes were made from scraps leftover from MY clothes. I remember her happily picking out the fabrics and spending hours trying to decide which trim to put on which dress.
Each of the blocks was unique……
It has been well used over the years and is a fun, fun reminder of a simpler time!!!

Your mother’s work is beautiful! The fabrics are so fun and a flash from the past. Thank you for sharing.
That really is a special memory quilt. I like that you can still remember what the fabrics were used for.
