Mum's Crazy Quilt
This is a quilt I made for my mother's 80th birthday in 2005. I actually finished it and gave it to her in person on her 81st birthday in Queensland, Australia where she lives. The quilt celebrates her life with pictures of her from a baby to current. All the motifs, embroideries etc are elements from either her New Zealand/Australia heritage as a wheat farmers wife for 50 years and include her various hobbies along the way especially her love of gardening and roses. It was joy to make and Mum has it hanging in her living room for all her visitor's to see.
