my mom – my teacher/mentor July 14, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — boutiquekarma @ 12:27 pm




A couple of weeks ago SnugNluv sent me a cute charm quilt – which was really funny because I had recently contemplated trying a quilt. You see my mother, as far back as I can remember has always been a quilter. In fact growing up I swore that I would NEVER, EVER be a sewer/quilter. I guess I can eat crow now.

I’m just showing two examples of some wall hangings my mother has given me- Geisha Girls was given to me for my engagement. It is GORGEOUS, huge and all hand sewn. The detail work is incredible as my mom hand stitched around the outline of every single butterfly. Unfortunately, because of its position in my hallway I can’t get a full shot.
Also is my turtle wall hanging.. I love the colors and simplicity of this one. Although I imagine it is WAY beyond my skill level (0). So pretty and calming.
I just wanted to share.

My mom purchased me a quilting kit for my birthday.. she is going to start coaching me. I’m pretty excited for these lessons to start. She bought a Christmas Tree Skirt kit, we figure this will give me enough time to complete it 🙂
