In honor of Labor Day, I'm thrilled to give you photos of a labor of love my mom and Mamma (grandmother) accomplished for me. My mom brought this on her recent visit, and I LOVE it!
Isn't it a gorgeous quilt?! I asked for "jewel tones," and I love the colors they used!
My Mamma did most of the piecing (sewing the pieces together), and my mom machine-quilted it. They are both experienced quilt-makers who do intricate, beautiful work.
I love the black background, and I even love the back of the quilt--because that's where the hidden gem of this jewel-toned quilt is discovered!
My mom used different colors of thread to quilt it--and I love the effect!
It's a great size for curling up on the couch on a cool winter evening (or on a warm summer evening when the kids and I have gotten chilled drinking smoothies!)
I'm so fortunate to be in a family with such talented and generous matriarchs!
