I have a set of quilts that I use for each month of the year….hearts for February, ocean scene for June, sunflowers for August….you get the idea!!
Most of these I have made over the years but there are a few that my mother made and the quilt that I use during the Easter month is one of hers…..
Interestingly, it is a quilt that she didn’t particularly like but I loved it, probably because of the amazing applique and quilting.
In particular, I love the “extra bits” that were worked into each of the blocks….
The ruched flower….
….the 3-D flower buds….
the “gathered” bells…..
….and the fabric that she used for the leaves…..
And then there was her quilting…..
Every stitch was even and perfect!!
It is coming up to the 6th anniversary of her passing and putting this quilt out at Easter is a wonderful reminder of her and her love of quilting!!
