Quilts and Fabric---I am addicted

Hi my name is Mimi and I am addicted to fabric  :) There I said it out loud--I feel so much better now.  Yes it's true I think I have a problem.  I just can't help myself, I see a pretty piece and I just have to have some.  I used to tease my mom about all the fabric she had in her stash and now I think I may just have more than she does.  I purchased this lovely group before the holidays......
Just in case you have the same addiction as I do, I purchased it from a wonderful etsy shop called Sew Deerly Loved. The name of this fabric is Pam Kitty Morning, Lakehouse. You can also find it here at The Fat Quarter Shop --- some of that pretty yellow is on it's way to my door as I write this :)  I told you I think I may have a problem (hahaha)
I also wanted to share with you a fun new book that I discovered. It is called Sugar Sack Quilts and I hope to some day be able to create a quilt as amazing as the ones in this book. 

Speaking of amazing quilts--I saved the best for last.  I have shared in previous posts what a wonderful quilter my mom is.  She has created many beautiful quilts and I am delighted to say that  I was the lucky recipient of her latest creation.

Several months ago we purchased a piece of  fabric covered with reproduction handkerchiefs.  My mom cut them apart and incorporated them in this beautiful quilt for my bedroom.

 I am thrilled with the way it turned out.  I think I may need a major room redo worthy of this work of art.  But that will be a post for another day :)
Just for fun and giggles I thought I would share this photo and caption with you..
it seemed an appropriate way to end this post :)
