My talented, thoughtful, amazing mother just gifted me this gorgeous bookshelf quilt she made! She modeled it after one of my own bookshelves and even included a picture of my cat! I couldn’t resist sharing her beautiful work with all of you book lovers! - Emily, Social Media Manager - Quilt made by Patsy Nayback Galer - #quilt #talent #amazing #booklove #books #bookshelf #cat #momsarethebest #gifts #quilting #beautiful


Lightning Bolt quilt progress: This weekend I worked on the putting together the lightning bolt blocks that I started last week. I’ve pieced all of the blocks now, and just need to put them together into a quilt top. 

I am happy with how the blocks turned out and how the colour placement gives the same block different looks. My seams and points aren’t all perfect, but they are much closer than they would have been a year ago, or even a few months ago. It’s nice to feel that my skills have improved! 

I’m hoping to finish up the quilt top this week and maybe even quilt over the weekend!
