When You Have Nothing to Show for Yourself

When you have nothing to show for yourself, well then show someone else's!

My mom finished this king-sized beauty right before Thanksgiving.  Its inspiration was an Asian themed fabric pack. 

If you click on the picture to make it larger, you might be able to see the feather quilting on the green sashing, and the leaves on the black frames.  She did an impressive job.  No one can tell that this was her first attempt at free-motion feathers and leaves.

Gorgeous, isn't it?


  1. What a glorious quilt! Tell your mom congratulations on the finish!!

  2. That is so beautiful! She did a wonderful job with both the piecing and quilting of it. The colors are gorgeous. Did she come up with the pattern on her own? I love it - be sure to tell her so!

  3. Your Mom did a wonderful job. First time FMQ and she attempted feathers! WOW!!!

  4. Your mom's quilt is indeed a beauty -do you know the name of the pattern that she used to create her gorgeous quilt?
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. So gorgeous! I love the colors and the quilting is beautiful! Tell your mom that quilt is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
