Default Quilts My Mom Made

Mom had called me last week to ask if I would take pics of the quilt that she made my son and the Double Wedding Ring quilt she made me. I thought I'd share the pics with you all and ...well, have something for us all to look at in a different forum.

I love both of them Tracy! Your mom does nice work.

I can't quite read the writing on the wedding ring quilt.

Does your mom do a lot of different crafts too?

Yes, she does some different crafty stuff. She has many quilts she has made. Those are just two she didn't have pics of and I had them.

Let me see if I can write what she wrote to me in her own words:

These circles of love go round and round

And grow sweeter when it's tightly wound

Cherish the days, cherish the hours

That was put in this quilt that flows with love abound

Those are beautiful Tracy, I like the decorative stitching along the green border of your son's quilt and I really like how yours doesn't have straight edges. I think the personal message is the best part though.

Ooooooo. Those quilts are gorgeous. I agree with Angela about the trims and edging. Very, very nice.
