more priceless items

This is another quilt I had started about 8 years ago...it was a workshop...I got as far as making all the baskets but didn`t get in the mood to make the flowers
I mentioned this to my Mom and she piped up with I`ll do them...sure okay...this was her first project in applique...she dug through my stash of mostly scraps at the time and started with these gorgeouse blocks







she counted them and said you don`t have enough baskets you need to make more...okay so I have just pulled out the fabric and made 6 more baskets she is now going to take them home and make more precious blocks to go with these others below.



are they not gorgeous she was a beginner at the time and her work was fantastic she just followed Eleanor`s instructions in her book. I love them all and they are dimensional too!!
I was lucky enough at a guild garage sale to pickup another book as above for a $1 with Eleanors siggy in it...I am giving this one to Mom since she likes her so much.

Mom is here with me this week so you know what we are doing. I will post when she is back home what we have done.

  15. I only have about 4 flower parts to finish this quilt, it is next up on the UFO list.
    Your mum did lovely work, and what a great way to introduce her to appliqué, Eleanor's is pretty fool proof and kapow results.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today, Sharyn in Kalama
