My Cherished Mother passed away last year just as I was about to make this vintage wallhanging. The flowers and leaves are from her wool blazers and vests that I felted and dyed. The buttons are hers too. The 9 patch blocks were put together a new way that worked up quickly. My friend Janet from Olde Crow Primitives and I were sharing the dark fabrics, but more often than not they were the same as we both love the reproduction, cival war fabrics. I worked on it off and on over the year. It was comforting. Because it was vintage, I hand quilted it in tiny stitches. I just LoVe how it finished up and I know Mom would too as she knew I was going to be making it.
In the wooden bowl are some of my primitive finds from an awesome Primitive show, "Spring Plantings" I went to last week in Holly Michigan with my friend Janet. We had a wonderful time.
Memories are for sharing.
Have a great week-end.
