I don't know that I have every mentioned it, but my mom is a quilter.  Its kind of funny, growing up she made a lot of our clothing.  She also sewed for weddings.  Now, all she does is quilt, she actually doesn't like to sew clothing!  Who knew?  Anyhow, while I was visiting her I noticed that she had several quilts in the works, so snuck a few pictures!  I know some are gifts, so I won't tell who they are for.

This first one is a wall hanging, oh, and since she already knows about it, this is for my sister's baby room.

All the fabrics are reproduction vintage prints, I love how they all come together! So cheery and colorful!

This quilt is going to be a baby blanket for a friend who had a little boy.  This one is pieced and ready for quilting, but it has not been quilted yet.

This next one is still in the piecing process.  It will be a nice throw for someone!  Mom uses the back of a vinyl table cloth to help her lay out a quilt and see if she likes how it is fitting together. 

This last quilt was made for my middle sister.  This will be her crib quilt.  I love all the vibrant colors, and Mom really did an awesome job on the quilting!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed that little tour of projects from my Mom!  She really does love to make quilts, she always has a few going and she has lots that she wants to make!  I hope I get to show you some more sometime!
