Quilt With Us

My mom was the youngest of 7 sisters plus she had a younger brother.  About 8 years ago I demonstrated how to do "y" seams at a quilt guild event, but then never made more than 4 of the blocks.  A while back I found them so I decided to make 3 more blocks and set them in to a setting similar to the "7 Sisters" layout in honor of my mom.  Her 1st name was Iva so I'm going to call this "Iva and Her Sisters".   I am still thinking about what I want to put on the label.  She loved flowers and birds so I might try to add some of each to the label.

It is beautiful! Like so many quilts, it has quite the story to tell.

What a lovely idea!

Thanks everyone.  Pam, there were quite a few years in between my mom's oldest sister & her.  My grandparents were pretty poor for a lot of my mom's childhood so the older sisters would actually live with other families as live in help.  The 1st time all 8 siblings were together at the same time was in 1969 at my cousin's wedding & both of my grandparents were deceased by then.  Kinda sad really, but I think typical for the times.

Wow!  That is so nice!  Clever thinking on your part.  Nice quilting, as well.

Thanks handstitcher & Irene.  The quilting done on the white hexagons was done on my embroidery machine.

Very nice Janet. Like handstitcher said, your mother would be proud.
