look what mum has made!!!

Today I would love to show you all what has been keeping my mum on the verge of sanity (it would push me over the edge) for the last few months. My aunt asked mum to make a quilt for her two grandchildren and mum decided on this quilt by Kellie Wulfsohn for her grandson.
It is just so gorgeous I wish it was for me, I may still kidnap it. She has done it all as needleturn applique as she is a little like me and likes to do work by hand.It keeps her busy at night.  It has been a real labour of love and the effect is superb.

 these are the pieces for the borders. She is working her way through them all, cutting them to size and basting the edges over ready for appliqueing.
Well done Mum!!

See you tomorrow for the Christmas finish for January!

That quilt is wonderful, so bright and cheerful, a gift to really treasure. All hand appliqued too! Please pass my compliments on to your mother.
I will be doing a Kellie workshop this year but on a much smaller project.

Wow that is simply fabulous! You and your Mum are certainly very clever.

So much to look at in it, would keep anyone fascinated for hours.

Tell your Mum that I think it's just awesome!! Are the circles applique'd on a whole cloth or done in blocks?
