You should know by now that, if I am posting about a LOT of handwork, it is someone else’s quilt!!
I have mentioned before that my Mom LOVED doing things with her hands. She seldom sat at night without a needle in her hand……….and stuck in the padded armrest….but that is another story!!
One of her favorite crafts was embroidery and she KNEW how to do it.
I thought she was crazy when she started this quilt…..
There are 50 blocks with each state and its bird and flower……
Look at all of these French Knots…..
And of course, her beloved Texas…..
Now the AMAZING thing here is that not only did she make this quilt, but she also went on to make TWO more of them!!!
I love that I have this quilt and when I look at it, I can see her bent over her needle and smiling!!

Such a gorgeous quilt! Your mother’s workmanship was outstanding!! A true labor of love…
Thanks so much. She certainly taught me the love of making things!!!
Frances what a lovely quilt to cherish. I love hand work and embroidery too. My quilting began in 1975. It was all done by hand. So I understand your mothers love for handwork.
I have seen a bunch of your handwork pieces and know that you do great work!!!
By any chance do you have the pattern
No Mary. I don’t remember seeing it when I cleaned out her house..
