Lucky Girl

A while ago I was reading on someone blog that as a quilter no one ever thought to give them a quilt as a gift. Over the years I have been lucky to be given a few quilts from my Mum. This one was given to me when I was 22 and is well worn and love. DH would prefer something with a little less pink in it. Below is a small Wall hanging, that hangs in my sewing room.
When I was home I saw a redwork that my mum had made, it had very traditional scenes, I strongly hinted that I would like one but with Australian scenes. The following Christmas guess what I got. This is my favourite lap quilt, it likes in my living room and is my go to quilt on chilly evenings.
The next quilt came as a total surprise. I just love all the bead work in it. At our old house I had this on the bedroom wall, I am planning on putting it up in my sewing room.
This last quilt I saw when I was home, I had said I liked it and didn't think much more about it. The following Christmas this was my gift. This is hanging it the small guess bedroom.
I really like these quilt and just how different they are than the quilts I make. I am still in awe that all these are hand stitched and quilted.

You ARE lucky!

I've received a few quilty gifts along the way. A couple of lap quilts and several smaller wallhangings and table runners. They are special to me because I know what goes into them.

Those are all just beautiful!

Oh how lovely they all are!
My daughter makes quilts, but she always loves a gift of one of mine.

The only quilt I have ever been given is an antique quilt that my husband's great grandma made. Believe it or not, I think that inspired me to try my own hand at quilting.
