A fun interval

I recently spent two weeks in Abilene, Texas working to clean out my Mom’s house and get it ready to put on the market to sell.

Mom reminded me that her quilt guild (the Abilene Quilter’s Guild) was presenting their annual show while I was there so we took some time off on Saturday to enjoy the show.

There were many wonderful quilts, but these were some of our favorites…..

I loved the colors and piecing of this one…..

I told Mom that I had this pattern at home and she is now interested in us making one similar to it…..

This was her all time favorite quilt.  Naturally it has lots of applique…..

Cleaning out another person's house (even if it is your mother's) is a huge job. Great idea to have this break in between. Good luck!
