Nothing to put in here yet but needed to start a thread for the forum to show up. Hopefully I'll have something soon...well, this year anyway. Hilarious!

You're welcome.

I don't think I clarified, but I allowed anyone to start a new thread in this forum so if you want to post your quilt/sewing pictures, just make a new thread for yourself and post them there. If I start the thread, it will have my mug at the top and it's all about YOU, not me, so you need to start your own thread.

Ha! I just saw that you already discovered to do that! What fabulous quilts!!!

Two strips need to be sewn yet but I took a picture to send to my mother ahead of time. Getting anxious!

Good feeling when the end is in sight. You are braver than I. I've never tried on of these and doubt I ever will.

Arlene, I've already posted my comments on other threads, but I'm with Karen on this. Not sure I'll ever try to
tackle that pattern. Jealous that you and Karen might get to visit. Still hoping you can join me and Vic here in
NC one day soon.

I have hope of being in Knoxville area of TN before too long. My sis lives in Nebo. Maybe we can pull off a meet at some point. Some of us from DG had a day together a few years back and it was a wonderful time.

It's always great to meet friends that we've formed on line. I remember fondly the one and only DG RU I
attended some years back in Asheville. Got some of my best plants there. Darius was there, along with
Bonnie from Raleigh. Bonnie was huge into irises. Had a wonderful time.

Very nice! Both the quilt and the mother-daughter time!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Thanks. My mother was going to give up quilting but this motivated her! I am so thankful for this time with her.

These are not quilts I made, but rather quilts I have from my mother, my aunt and my grandmother. I wanted to post photos here so I have them at my fingertips.

This is one of the quilts I thought I had lost which just made me sick. It is an antique quilt a friend had started and gave to me. I then gave it to my mother. There were pieces missing but she was able to find matching fabric to finish it. She HATES doing applique but she did it for me. Notice the quilting pattern in the last photo. All hand quilted.

The funny thing is, I found another applique one she did as well. I had forgotten about it.

And finally, one we bought on a visit to Lancaster. It was at a shop David's sister knew the women who ran it. Amish made, totally hand quilted too. Star over Georgetown.

Oh Wow Arlene!!! what treasures. My great grandmother made quilts from fabric my mom sent her from our clothes. None fell into my hands, an aunt took them all. I remember seeing them when I was a teen and picking out which fabrics were mine. They were nothing so fancy as these as Granny did "practical" piecing. Mostly of the plain blocks variety.

I know, that's part of the reason I was heart sick when I thought I had lost several of them. I'm sorry you didn't get any of your great grandmother's quilts, Karen. My grandmothers also made just plain blocks of scrap fabric. My mother is the queen of using scrap fabrics! She finally broke down and bought some new fabric from a lady who was giving up sewing and had lots of quilting fabric. I am benefitting from that! Hilarious!

Oh, Arlene, what treasures! And the handiwork is amazing. I'm in awe of those embroidered quilts and for someone who
doesn't like applique, your mom sure did beautiful work. You are blessed indeed.

We all have our differing areas. I can do piecing, but applique is way out of my league. Embroidery too is not high on my list. I consider myself an adequate quilter. Not going to do any paper piecing but the simple stuff is fine with me.
