Party in Your PJs #160


I quilted this wall hanging that my mother made.My mother is a fabulous sewer of quilt tops. Occasionally she makes what she calls wall hangings.

Three years ago, she gathered her five children together and she gave us the quilt tops that she had sewn over the last several years.

We each went home with 22! That’s over 110 that she had made.

My mother’s birthday was Saturday. My sisters and I gathered together and took her out to lunch yesterday to celebrate.

Afterwards, she wanted us to go to her home. Come to find out. She had more quilt tops that she wanted to give us. This time, we got 15. That means she had an additional 75 that she had made in the last 3 years.

This is a picture of one of the wall hangings that she made that I quilted on my long arm quilting machine. It is so cheery and perky. I absolutely love it.

By the way, Mom turned 91 this year. She is totally amazing! She lives on her own and takes care of herself — and is even a good driver!

I have only quilted half of the quilts that I got last time. And now I have 15 more. I know what I’ll be doing with all of my spare time!

Okay. Let’s get this party rolling!

My first feature is a summer bucket list from Holly over at While I Am Waiting. Just think! Here’s a summer bucket list already made up. You don’t have to come up with your own ideas. And, it looks cute and is colorful. Probably lots cuter than one I could ever create! Print one up to give to each of your grandkids’ family. Their mother will love you for it!

My next feature is a happy terra cotta pot by Susan at Suzer Space. So simple that grandkids could easily make a flock of these. If grandma had that many pots! (Then, you need to help them put a plant in it! This would be a great activity on a summer bucket list for grandchildren!)

Thank you Holly and Susan for sharing your terrific ideas!

    Joyce, I agree that she is amazing! I love to see all that she’s pieced together. I’ll definitely stay busy quilting all of them!

    I will definitely rotate the hangings. But as for the quilts, I’m not sure. I’m thinking of possibly giving them to a local nursing home or a women’s shelter. I’ve also heard that there is a veteran’s care center. Maybe I could donate some quilts to them. I have WAY more than my family can use!

    Thank you so much for featuring my bucket list! My kids look forward to it each year. It’s a super simple way to find something fun to do on those days when they want to think they are “bored” (which is a bad word in our house!). Hope you have a great summer! Enjoy those grandkids!!!

    I am just amazed at your mother’s quilts! The designs, the colors, the workmanship…..! What treasures! And not only that, but the incredible output! I think she has many productive years – and many more beauties – ahead of her!
