Hubby Kay and I have spent the last 9 days putting together blocks my Mom sewed but never put into quilt tops due to her dementia and alzheimers. From these blocks "so far" we have put together 9 quilt tops in various sizes and we are not done yet! lol
I am not sure why I feel the "need" to do this but since I do. My sweet hubby is doing the sewing and I am organizing the projects.
In the mean time I work on unfinished card kits- watch for that post coming this week! woot~
here are some photos of the tops
thank goodness Mom had sewn these into 12" squares but its gorgeous, I wish she had had enough of either the white or the pink for a border but it's not going to happen~ this is a twin sized top
This one is gorgeous in person. Again, crib size and the top was already together I just added the border- there is enough of the green for binding and in my Mom's traditional way will have just regular muslin for the backing.
This 4 patch started with just 2 blocks sewn together. My hubby sewed them into 4 patches and then into this queen size top and I am debating on a border. One of the fabrics in the patches has enough yardage for a border and binding-
Most of the time I am enjoying working on the things Mom left behind and the rest of the time I am sad. Sad that I really didn't realize how bad she was getting, how many unfinished projects she had that I could have helped her with and just plain sad because I miss the Mom she wasn't able to be the last 15 years of her life- not the one I remember. Alzheimers is a horrific disease.
Now to find someone to machine quilt them and put them away for her posterity,
hope your day is amazing and creative!
