Display Chain~ Stitched or Sewn with Love

Once again, I'm taking part in Misi's display chain. This week's theme is Stitched or Sewn with Love. I have lots of things I could share, but decided to stick with my three favorites.

Both the rabbit & prairie doll were made for me by my mom. I am so grateful to still have her in my life. The prairie doll is one of my all time favorite gifts.

This quilt was one of the quilt tops that I finished a couple of years ago. I have a bad habit of making the quilt tops & then not putting them together & quilting them.
I sew each week with a small group of ladies. One is my mom & another I call my second mom. Two years ago they "borrowed" this quilt top (without me knowing) & finished it for me. It was a wonderful surprise & I am so thankful to both of them. It is beautiful!!

Please excuse the crappy pics~I can't seem to take a good one. The colors are much richer than pictured in all my pics. And does anyone know what this white circle is in this pic (bottom left side of quilt)?

This final picture is the quilt I made for my son upon completion of his Eagle Scout project. It took my 6 months to make, but I love how it turned out. Again~excuse the washed out pic.

To see other wonderful postings, head over to Misi's blog. You won't be disappointed.

The quilts are beautiful. I have a bad habit of making the quilt top & not quilting them. I have two tops done that need quilted & another quilt started. Well I have a soft spot for dolls. I make them. Your doll is beautiful. sometimes I get those white spots in my photos. Not sure why. Blessings!

Hi Becky,
What wonderful gifts of love you have from your Mom! I love that your two Mommas finished your quilt...how sweet is that?
My Mom-in-law is an avid quilter and sewed quilts for both our "eagles" using all the patches they earned in scouts. The boys sure treasure those blankets, as I'm sure your son treasures his! It's really beautiful. :)
Thanks for sharing your photos!
