house of quilting

We just got back from a week at my mum's. She is a quilter. There's a lot of quilts in her house. I thought I would share a glimpse of just a few. We sleep under them, and they hang on the walls.
Now I see them together as a group I feel impressed! We all take the quilts for granted in our family and don't really consider them or the skills taken to make them. Time for rethink?


  1. they are beautiful and all so different - the stuff of heirlooms. What a clever Mum. I bet they are a labour of love. Lovely too that they are able to be enjoyed and used.

  2. beautiful. I particularly love the one in the second photo.

  3. I think it's easy to overlook a body of work like that when you are used to sleeping under it. Looks like your mom has a very creative mind as well as some awesome sewing skills.

    Oh yeah, I passed you Another Annoying Award (AAA) !
