States Quilt

Back in October I had a post about quilting with my Mom.  She has early dementia/Alzheimer's and had recently moved into assisted living.  She was having difficulty with her sewing machine and the decision was made not to move it to her new home, but she still enjoyed hand sewing.  We started making the states quilt together and she has completed all 50 embroidered blocks.  I am preparing  for my annual quilt retreat with my small quilting group this weekend and I am planning to dedicate most of the weekend to sewing these blocks together.


It is quite time consuming as each of the blocks has set in corners, but I have worked out a system and they are going together quite well. 

I also am all caught up on the Just Takes 2 blocks.  My wall of blocks is starting to look very interesting :)
Happy Stitching All,


  1. I love to see all of your red and white blocks together. They look great so far! Your Mom made speedy progress on all of that embroidery! She must love doing it. What will you get her working on next?

  2. That is fantastic! What a fun project for your mom.
    Love the r&w blocks too!!
