The first is my valentine's block for this year (and actually the last several years). I just realized that I don't think I've shared my mom's annual valentine's blocks since 2013. Every year my mom makes a block for Becky and I, with the idea that sometime we'll sew them all into a quilt. It's a fun tradition, and always neat to see what technique or approach she's chosen. Usually it's somehow related to some other project she's working on- so it makes a nice time capsule.
In 2014 mom was working on an applique dinosaur quilt for my new nephew :)
In 2015 she was doing lots of wool applique, and Sue Spargo-inspired embroidery.
2016 was when we were experimenting with felting.
2017 is back to her core piecing!
Love you Mom!
