A Portrait of a Quilter and Her Quilt

My mom likes to cut fabric up into really small pieces and sew it back together. Some people call this quilting. This is a quilt my mom made and is one of my favorites. I love the colors, the detail, the precision, and the way each block kind of looks like a vortex, but then when sewn together with all the other blocks, creates a different pattern altogether.


And this is my mom, holding up her quilt so I can take a picture. (That's her finger in the upper right hand corner.)


Amazing, isn't it?


Just in case you are wondering what my mom does with these quilts, I will tell you. They get folded up and put in a big stack. Like this:

That is amazing art. Your mom is Talented. I would buy one of those quilts tell her if she doesn't want them to sell them to me!

I think that is the most amazing and beautiful quilt I have ever seen! It makes me want to try quilting again--though I don't think I truly have the patience or the talent for it. Also, I love your description of quilting--cutting up fabric and sewing it back together--I had never thought about it that way. Funny!

I love that quilt too! Why are they sitting in a pile like that? I would happily take one or more off her hands if she doesn't know what to do with them!!
