My pretties

This is a quilt for one of my great niece's. When mom and I were doing quilts for the wee one's we had forgot a few. I am sorry but we are fixing that little over site. We have one more to go.
This is a quilt that I have been working on for about 8 months. It is for my son Troy's girlfriend. It is hand quilted by the piece. I don't know why I put myself through all that but I do. The end result is the best.
This has nothing to do with quilting. I have a first cousin that makes these pictures out of wood. It sticks out of the frame. Well this is a picture of the house that my mother was born and raised in. There are so many memories from this house. It no longer stands but now we have this to refresh our memories. I told mom all that it needed was trees and memaw's flowers.

Another Baby Alphabet Quilt

Before our Mom left to go out of town with my sister Margaret ( the average quilter) we had put together another baby quilt for my niece. And I know I am slow about posting. I have been trying to finish a quilt that I have been doing for the last 7 months. I hand quilt so it takes me a little longer than most. But I am almost there.
The baby quilts I piece and my mom quilts them on the machine, than I use the kwik bind that my mother got for mothers day. (One day she will learn how to use it, but until than I will do it).

Hope everyone of you are having a great summer.
