Three More Quilts

Georgetown circle...Mom made this in 1983...isn't it spectacular! Hand pieced and hand quilted...the perfect Christmas quilt...she later made a second one for my sister with more primitive fabrics...have also seen this design done up in a scrappy style and would someday like to make one of those too...
Amish Square in a Square...we saw a quilt in country Living and fell in love with it...Mom made this one in 1984...hand pieced and hand quilted...an absolute beauty in person with all the fancy quilting...and the binding is that "baby poop" bronze...

Mom is currently working on another Amish quilt for sister Judy...another quilt from a long ago Country Living page I'd saved...


Okay, I was 19 when I picked out the fabrics for this quilt and there we had to send away for them...there weren't quilt shops and cotton fabric like we can find today...

Seems my color choices have changed a bit since then...but I love this hand pieced , appliqued and quilted quilt... Ninepatch Nosegay from 1979...

Growing up with had a treasured applique iris quilt form grandma and we called it The Sick Quilt...only got it out to cover someone if they were sick and needed the extra comfort of a lovingly made quilt...this has since become my own sick quilt...rarely sees the light of day...
