    Finished

    Finished another quilt that my mother did the embroidery work on, probably 20 to 30 years ago. At the time she was doing this I was not interested in sewing at all. Have 4 more to go that she did embroidery work on. Sue100_2158.jpg100_2142.jpg100_2159.jpg

    Awesome. I have some that I inherited already embroidered, too. I could send them to you, when you finish all of yours. LOL. In my some day pile. Surely someday I will retire and have more time!

              Love your projects, Sue. How are you having them quilted - or are you machine quilting or doing by hand?

                            This is absolutely beautiful. And so sentimental! I inherited squares of the state flowers from my Grandmother in 1960. She had sent them to friends across the country to embroider...some returned, some not. So last year when I started quilting I made up the two missing ones (at the time she did it there were only 48 states) and put them together with vintage looking sashing and border. It is at the LAQ now....can't wait to see it. Hope I can do the picture thing by then!
