Some of Momma's stuff

Well, I'm working on some stuff (amazingly) but haven't finished anything (not amazingly) so I thought that I'd show the 4 of you that aren't family a few quilts Mom has done. I'm a bad daughter, I didn't even ask or anything! Shame on me. But I'm still gonna share cause they are too cute not too!
So, this is my kids room at my parent's secondary home. The ceiling has an orange in the pattern (circa 1960's ceiling tiles!), my Aunt made a joke about doing the room orange, and well, here you go! Mom ran with the idea and they are sooooo cute! It's totally not Mom, but they are a fun combo and are darling together.
More white for The Girl, more orange for The Boy:) She made the shams to go with it, and matching note boards above the beds. I'm pretty sure she is envisioning a place to store all the artwork the kids create and right now they have a picture of their respective child on them.
I have to admit that I wasn't huge on borders till these quilts. I think they ended up being my favorite part!
This next one was made to live at the house of Mom and Dad's good friend that is gonna be a Grandma soon.
This is Amy Schimler from the Animal Party line.
At first she wasn't going to use a dog print cause Alice works Animal Control and is seriously a dog and animal lover; she thought it might be cliche! But, seriously, who can resist Amy Schimler?? And she added more cute borders. Seriously, she is winning me over the this border thing!
So, yeah, Mom has talent! Like me she has very few of her quilts that live at her house. Most live with someone else. She's always willing to give the gift of a quilt!
