Monday's Mantra....Marvelling at My MOM! This post is like a mother/daughter date...


My mom is at it again...All hand applique!  She strated this work of art while at my home a couple of months ago and fun to shop for the "perfect" center fabric...and then when I saw it she had switched to even more perfect piece!  What a gifted artist and she is my mom!!! I love the brights and so amazing to see in person. Hope you enjoy this beauty!

While smiling as my phone would beep with admiration for mom's quilt above, I was playing with Roxy on my LITTLE BLESSINGS piece.. a mix of Gloria Loughman and a little curvy Diane Hire....In an Em sort of way..and maybe a pinch of Van Gogh Starry Starry night...





 I titled this little piece Little Blessings from the line of fabric I used to cut out these well wishes from Guardian Angels in the sky....Sentiments mom has loved to me through my life.......



a type of silver lining......



back of quilt...my first official double sided feather for a border...YIPPEEEEEEEE, I finally did not let them scare me!

What will be my next project........ Can't wait to cut into yummy new idea TOOmorrow...seems appropriate on a TOOsday......

Love, Em
