Mom’s been busy

Some of you were wondering how much progress Mom has made on her projects so I thought I’d share some photos.

The schoolhouse top is done

Her Nine patch and Heart top is done (and the hearts for my quilt have been appliquéd).

She made the rest of the blocks for my sister’s Churn Dash and assembled the top.

The Turtle top is done and all 4 of these will be quilted by me so I’ve got some work ahead of me!

She’s also done all the appliqué and assembled the petals and circles top – this one she’ll quilt.

She finished binding the giraffe and sea creature quilts.

She’s got more projects to work on but she’s making lots of progress!


  1. You and your mom make lovely quilts! So nice that you can visit back and forth fairly often. I like your new bike. Sounds like you are getting good use out of it.

  2. That’s a great lineup off quilts your mom has finished. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Have a safe trip and and a nice visit.

  3. Wow, I’m impressed. That’s a lot of piecing. The quilts are so different in style, it makes me smile.

  4. All of the quilts are wonderful! Making lots of progress is an understatement! I am thoroughly impressed!—and feeling like a “slug” right about now! :o)

  5. Hi Mary! Thanks for sharing the updates on your mom’s quilts. I just LOVE the churn dash quilt, and it’s one I’ve never made myself. I don’t know why as I’m always drawn to it. All of them are so cute, and you’ll have something to keep you busy when you get back as well. Enjoy your visit! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. You and your mother are so amazing. You both accomplish SO much!! And you both do beautiful work! Enjoy your time together!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing! Bet your Mom didn’t realize she had such a big following. I love all of her quilts — The layout of the schoolhouse quilt is so different — it’s fabulous! And the colors of the Churn Dash are beautiful. She is just amazing.
