Anything Goes Quilt 'n Sew #15 - My Mom is the best!

A couple of weeks ago I told you that my mom was helping me basting hexies.  Well, she decided to send them to me and on Friday they arrived in the post.  


At first when I opened it up it was hard to imagine that there are over a thousand basted.  

So I started unpacking them on my cutting table and the picture changed completely.  
  
Its really  nice how things worked out as most of the hexies I basted are mostly dark colours and the ones my mom made are light and medium.

Don't they look pretty? 


I think this is going to be a nice project to keep busy during the coming winter months. 

That was not all that was in the box.  Some years ago when my parents where visiting my sister in the UK she painted these panels as part of a class that she was giving at the time.  The colours are so bright and much prettier than in the pictures.

  

I have not yet decided what I'll make with them, but one thing is certain, I will be quilting them.

My Mom is simply the best!  I honestly cant find the words to explain how much she means to me.


Let's get to this week's linky party.

It's Monday and a new week, so lets all share some of our projects, please link up any current projects you've been working on, anything at all...  This link is open for a week and will run every Monday.  Remember to come back next week, or follow my blog to get regular updates.

If you wish feel free to add any other blog posts you write during the week, since this linky stays open for a full week, I think its a great idea to share and keep sharing.

All I ask is that you either add the 'Anything Goes' blog button to your sidebar or add a text link to your blog post, and comment on a few of the other links too, share the love and make this weekly link party a fun way to connect.
