A Bonding Moment By: Barb R, British Columbia, Canada
I just love the peaceful feeling of this little art piece, created several years ago for a friend. It is appliqued, touched up with Tsukineko fabric inks, then thread painted (I wasn’t skilled enough to threadpaint the words around the border – they are done with permanent marker.)

A Mother Never Forgets By: All Things Belle, Utah, USA
This was quite the emotional quilt for me. It is dedicated to the baby I lost a few months before I conceived Juliette.
I choose rough edge applique to symbolize my raw emotion. I free motion embroidered “A Mother Never Forgets” in between the blood lines that link me to the angel baby.

Bliss Between Friends By: Mary on Lake Pulaski, Minnesota, USA
After my Dad passed away last year, I discovered Mom and Dad were using a quilt on their bed (68 years of marriage) that I had made for Dad. So I had to brighten up Mom’s bedroom and make something just for her.

Life (Measures of Time) By: Annabel Rainbow, United Kingdom
Life (Measures of Time) English patchwork over papers, applique, stitch and paint. My mother says this is her but it’s just a reflection of female life as we grow older. A slightly unusual interpretation of the title I admit!

Lullaby By: Lindy, Washington, USA
QA issued a challenge last year with a photo as inspiration. I had been reading up and wanting to try thread painting so I ‘went for it’. Swan thread painted on wool felt, then appliqued on silk scarf and batiks. My mother loved this mother swan piece so much she now has it on display in her home.

My Daughters Garden By: Bev Remillard, California, USA
I treasure every memory of my children and this quilt honors my daughter. I made this simple 4 x 9 patch with pieces of my daughters dresses, dolls, etc. I set the blocks on a sweet floral background to bring out all the colors.

Northwest Family By: Lizze, Washington, USA
My mom lives on the Puget Sound and loves Seattle. The blocks are from the Western WA. Shop Hop a few years back, featuring scenes from the state. I knew I would make it for her, but added the Mother and baby whale and Mt. Ranier to personalize it. I gave it to her for Mother’s Day.

Yellow Lady Slippers By: Dinah Tackett, New Mexico, USA
I made this for my Mother a couple of years ago for Christmas. It is one of my early Art quits. I used Yellow Ladyslipper for the design because she loves them (actually any yellow flowers). The flowers are a combination of Batik, sheer fabric and silk ribbon. It is machine quilted.
