Not Just for Mother's Day

Available on Zoom for Spring of 2022!

Not just for Mother's Day, and not just for mothers! We all had mothers, and we all have others we care for and nurture.

First up, a PowerPoint of award-winning quilts. that celebrate women and capture the joys, tribulations, and memories of family life. Some are deeply sentimental, others wild and quirky as all get out! I promise: Many more laughs than tears! 

Next, I'll share my collection of antique doll, crib, and baby quilts from my book, Great Little Quilts, plus my unusual vintage quilts with special meaning for moms--Broken Dishes, Dresden Plates, Mending Fences, Wedding Ring....you get the picture!

For the Show ‘n Tell!: Share the quilts your mom inspired, or the quilts you made for your mom, or as a mom, for your children or grandchildren.

"If only you could know the thanks behind each thought of your slide show of Mothers' Quilts…and the smiles you made us smile as we had warm memories of our own mothers and the generous things they did for us. Thanks so much."—Newtown Quilt Guild


"An enjoyable presentation, fun and lively.  Such an eclectic array of quilts!” -- Daria, Molly Pitcher Stitchers
