When I think of how I methodically work through projects, not starting one page until I’m through with the current one, I know I got that from my mom. In her quilting circles, she’s famous for not having any UFO’s (Unfinished Objects) in her sewing room.
She’s also a champ at using her stash. The picture above is a quilt she made from fabric selvedge. Fabric selvedge is the printing at the bottom of a bolt of fabric. She was inspired to do this by seeing old quilts made with cigar silks. Can you imagine making a scrapbook layout using the little strips at the bottom of the patterned paper that show the brand?
She was the Featured Quilter at this year’s show, which is quite an honor. It’s sort of a lifetime achievement award. She had her own booth and showcased a bunch of her work. She was also pleased as punch to parade her daughters around to all of her friends.
I’ve included the signage from her booth so you can read more about her (click the photo to enlarge). Congratulations Mom!
