Summer moments in July

My dad was able to make more quilt holders for me so we put up another quilt this is in my living area. This was the first stack and whack I ever did...and sure wasn't my last doesn't it look great with my dad's great talents
This is what it looks like in with my day bed there.. the trundle bed was his mothers I was very fortunate to get it.. I know the 2 quilts don't go together but I love the brightness of the other quilt. it is called it is a bugs life.. when you see it on a big bed the blue looks like a ripple of water.
Taa DAAAAA.. my mother made this isn't it awesome!! this is her first mini swap and her first mini that she has made hand appliqued and hand quilted even down to her prairie points. She has this done and it is going to be on its was soon.. the person receiving this I think is very fortunate. She fussy cut the fabric you can click on the pic and see the butterflies and hand drew the design freehanded... you can see a secondary design in the quilting.
Here is mom holding her mini.. now you can see that it is a great mini..

  1. Your Mom did a great job with that fussy cutting of the butterflies. I love the placement of the blue down the middle and the two corners with the orangy.

  2. Gorgeous mini your Mom made, Deb.

    Your stack and whack is beautiful and I love the colors.

    Isn't it wonderful that your Dad can contributd get involved with both of you and your Mom's quilting endeavors?

  3. Ohmygosh, ohmygosh, ohmygosh - that mini is incredible!! I can't wait to find out who the lucky recipient is!!

    And seriously, Dolores' comment does say it all - what a talented family. The stack & whack (with all those prairie points!) is wonderful as is the bug quilt.
