Karen's "Mama Said" quilt

Karen brought her "Mama Said" quilt when she came to teach class yesterday.  She made this quilt in honor of her Mother's 90th birthday. The blocks have her Mom's favorite sayings embroidered around each block (I didn't get very good pictures of those).  

This quilt was accepted to hang at the 2013 AQS Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky.  This is a big deal.  Over 4,000 quilts were submitted for entry however, a little more than 400 are chosen to be displayed.  We were thrilled to be in the same room with someone famous!      

These pictures do NOT do this quilt justice.  It is truly stunning.  

can you see the sayings embroidered around each block?  

the border of Karen's "Mama Said" quilt.  Notice the embroidered 'sayings' around the block on the left.  

The label on Karen's "Mama Said" quilt.  I love the picture of Karen and her Mom.  The label really says it all!
