I finally decided which quilts to enter in our Flying Geese Guild Quilt Show. One was an easy choice, the other hard. The easy one was my mom's quilt, which I'm entering on her behalf.
She never entered a show, and I know this would have made her happy. Can you believe all of that work was done by hand? Piecing and quilting for a finished size of 64 inches by 90 inches. I'm calling it Lucy's Flower Garden - that was her favorite pattern. I had to wash it, as the kids use this one, as mom would have wanted. She never minded seeing my boys laying on the floor with a quilt. I love that - she never saw her quilts as too precious to use.
The hard one to decide on for the show was mine. Because the show's in October, I decided to go with this one. It's hard to see here, but it has buttons and lots of decorative stitching.
I'm not expecting to win, just glad I'm entering. It will be neat to walk the show and see something I created. I think seeing Mom's quilt will be much more special, though.
