My mom has made several quilts but this latest one is very special to me. I have wanted a leaf quilt for years and she made this one just for me. It's 100% handstitched and is king size. I think that's impressive. What do you think?








Updating with some pictures of some other quilts she has made. These pictures don't do the quilts justice at all. I'll update with more pics if/as I get them. I now have a mission to document her work Smiley


Tumbling Blocks Quilt    The first quilt she ever made, made for me, and another of my favorites.


Multi Colored Double Wedding Ring Quilt      Each ring is a different color.


Puppies and Kitties Quilt      She made this for my nephew, her first grandchild. It was her first venture into applique.


Yellow and Blue Baby Quilt      Made for my son before he was born. We didn't find out if I was having a boy or girl so she tried to make it suitable for either.


Isaac's Quilt      Made for my son after he was born. I love this quilt. When he outgrew using it, I put it up on his wall.

And again, these are all hand sewn and hand quilted.
