Cover girl! Not me, but my mom!!!

A lot of you don't know that my mom and I started out on our quilting adventure together.  She loves to design, and she is wonderful at it.  She makes beautiful quilts with her own designs that you just want to make.  That is what I thought when she showed me her original "Flea Market Flowers" quilt.  I have dibs on the original one... Anyway, I have been trying to get my mom to get out of her comfort zone of just showing a few friends and me her quilts, so she submitted this design to Quiltmaker and she was pleasantly surprised to have it accepted. She designed it, pieced it, quilted it and did a beautiful job.  She was nervous though, and didn't hear back once it was sent off, the waiting game started and she started to worry that they didn't like the quilt. Well, I was at dinner one night and my mom called me and told me she was sent two copies of the magazine and HOLY COW - she was the cover!! I have never been more happy and so excited for my mom.  She worked so hard on this quilt and what a reward to be the cover girl on her first magazine quilt submission.

Isn't this quilt beautiful?  I love it so much!  I couldn't be prouder of my mom.

 Because this quilt is so great, Quiltmaker has a limited amount of kits available here.  You can get your own copy of the magazine here.  Now, I just have to finish convincing my mom to start up a blog so she can share her talents with the rest of us.  Oh, and I need to convince her that the computer is not her enemy... Love ya Mom!
