My Badass Quilting Mama

First off, let me state that this post is long overdue. Some of you may have noticed a slightly out of place link on the COI Daily Hits entitled "All Things Quilty". My mother and I both started our blogs around the same time (back in March). I wanted to post this before the NHL regular season started.

My Mom is one hell of a lady. She has been quilting since the late 1970's. She worked as a teacher in Wake County Public Schools for over 30 years (a large chunk of it teaching Learning Disabilities K-2, nonetheless). Now that she is retired - the majority of her time goes into her beautiful quilts and spending time with her grandbabies (my brothers kids! Wuff will remain childless for a few more years!).

Her posts vary from day-to-day between her quilting skills, latest techniques, nature photography, and reports on her grandbabies.

To highlight a few of my favorite posts she has done:

A Tribute To My Artistic Father (defenitly worth checking out - My Grandfather is a retired professional water-color artist)

Quilting Gardeners (yes, she's also got an extremely green thumb)

Love you Momma - Keep up the good work!
