Happy Mothers Day!!

A Happy Mothers Day to all Blogger Friends, forum Friends and friends that I am able to meet with personally. This is always a special day and I am very lucky to spend it with my mother. Here we are together after a wonderful day in Niagara Falls Ontario taking in their spectaclar quilt show. There was a special table just for the 2 of us and the Ladies that organized the show took a picture of us eating their delicious cabbage rolls and apple dupplings..homemade!! yum

I have a Fantastic Friend as well Sandy Lindal a LAQ she took time out of her busy quilters life (3 teens!!) and quilted my broken star mini (24in square) Sandy done this on her table top Bernina!! Sandy done fantastic feathers for me in these 2 inch squares and then on the outskirts more delicious feathers (if only I could). I just sat in awe and watch her zoom this baby along. Sandy is so precious and I thank her for her time and her ear.. I have bent it a few times these 2 weeks. If you click on the pictures you will see more detail.

This mini will be donated to our Yorkshire Rose Mini Auction that will be on May 13th only 4 days away!! I have been busy with getting my mini's done and organizing the paper work that needs to be done for the auction. It is alot harder to give this up Sandy done such a fabulous work of art on it...but she would like us to make one for each other.. so that makes it easier!! LOL

  8. Hi Deb
    I thought I would stop by and take a look at your blog. You have some fun stuff going on. I think it's great that you and your mom go together to quilt outings. I love princess "Ruby" she looks beautiful. And your Gram's bears are a sweet memory. Your "broken star is beautiful job well done. I have that pattern I will have to gather some fabric and give a try.

    Hope you have a great day. :o}

  9. Hi Deb,

    As always the Lone Star Quilt is one of your best works. I have to agree that Sandy is one talented quilter and that's only a small sample of her talents! Wishing you the best of luck with the auction - wish I could be here but Quilt Market is calling me and we have an early class in Pittsburgh on the 14th!

    It's wonderful to see you with your mom and I'm so glad you two are able to have this great weekend together! All the best,


  10. Well, that star quilt is one more I have to add to my list of quilts I am inspired to make because of blogging. I love it. Thanks.
