Noah's Ark {Quilt}

I cannot explain to you in words how unbelievably talented my mother is.  She seriously can do anything crafty.  And I mean anything.  Since I can remember she's been sewing, quilting, toll painting, carving wood, crocheting, knitting, etc.  There is seriously nothing she can't do.  Everything she even attempts to try turns out beyond perfect.  I have been able to reap these crafty benefits my whole life {she literally made ALL of my clothes until I got to junior high and found out if wasn't "cool" anymore to have homemade clothes!}, and now my children get to as well.

Here's a picture of the latest wonder she has come up with:
A Noah's Ark quilt!
Every square has an embroidered animal/s to go with every letter of the alphabet.
{Trust me, these pictures don't do it justice!}
Aren't they cute?!
And this is rare nowadays:  HAND STITCHED!!
Yes, the whole quilt is hand stitched.
I told you she was AHmazing!

She embroidered all of these animals on a nifty new machine she purchased, then sewed and quilted it all together.  Can you say awesome!

I just had to share this one project out of a zillion-katrillion she has made over the years.

I hope you have enjoyed her awesomeness as much as we have :)


  1. Wow. Your mom is amazing... so is your Dad. His woodwork is phenomenol. Love you and your family!

  2. The truly impressive part of that quilt IS the hand quilting. I'm currently hand quilting The one I made for Scott. We're going on 5 years now (in my defense, the quilt is queen sized and I've had two more babies).

  3. By the way, my 'is' is capitalized (you can't tell) :)


I would L.O.V.E. to hear from you! :)
