Quilts made with love


My mother-in-law is the most giving person around! Her name is Mary. She has made over sixty quilts in just the past three years. It is her passion, her love, her addiction. One summer, she made twenty quilts and gave most away to family and donated some to the long-term care hospitals.

Mary’s style is hand-stitching. She prefers this to machine stitching. In my opinion, this has a much more hand-craft look and warmer than machine, and takes much more patience!

These two quilts she made for my friends. The small lap quilt is an asian influenced design from a pattern. My friend Angela picked out the colour scheme. The large double-size quilt is made of fabric remnants given to her from Shani (who the quilt is made for as a surprise gift).
