QUILT QWAZY QUEENS MAKING US LAUGH BLOG HOP



Here is the fun line up!!



It seems that this blog hop could not come at a better time for most of us, when the world is going crazy around us.

So...I like making  door hangings for my mother.  When Joan, Moose Stash Quilting, asked me if I wanted to join, I thought what a perfect way to get motivated to do another door hanging.

I spent a few days pondering and gathering ideas, at the time it was getting close to Valentines Day.

So this is what I came up with.



I used a coloring page, Island Batik Fabrics, and my embroidery machine.

It has been hanging on my mother's door for over a month now.

My mother has dementia, as I was bringing her home from the hospital the other day she had asked me if I knew which room she was in.  I told her I did, she asked me if her room had been moved.  I told her no.  Well....when we got to her door, she smiled when she saw the door hanging and said, yes, this is my room.  Something so simple to bring back a memory.

So I thought I would show you some of the other hangings I have done for her.  Some of you may remember and if you are just coming by my blog, well....enjoy!



This was one of the first to grace her door, it now hangs above her bed.  She laughs at this one because she truly does not do mornings, unfortunately, I think I take after her.  You have to give me about 30 minutes to wake up before you talk to me.




I made this one for her last Easter



This was an Island Batik Challenge one year, which I put on my mother's door when it was finished




I just thought this was one of the funniest ones, now hangs by her fridge.


This was one of the very first ones to hang on her door, a few of the residents threatened to steal it, so we took it off and hung it on her wall.




My mother Loves Tweety Bird and she just loved this one.

It has been fun hanging things on her door.  There have been other wall hanging that I have made that have graced her door but these  were specifically made for her with the exception of a the tree and pumpkin.

It was always fun to hear the reaction of the residents when they would see a new door hanging.  I know my mother has enjoyed them and being how she is now, she enjoys them like new every day.

Thank you so much Joan, Moose Stash Quilting, for allowing me to join in.  If there are some of you who haven't been to her blog, you are definitely missing out.  If you want a laugh or to be entertained, her blog will do it.

What a wonderful story behind your door hanging. I love the Christmas Tree, I would have threatened to steal it too!

Door hangings! What a great idea for your mom. Now, I know another project that I can do while staying home. I had just begun visits with a friend from church who has entered an assisted living facility, but had to put these on hold for now. Maybe I can have one ready for her when visits resume. Thanks for sharing.

Your door hangings are the best. I used to make them for my mom's room too. Love your use of coloring pages as inspiration...I might just have to admit that the first one resembles me just a bit too much! LOL!! Thanks for giving us all a warm and wonderful laugh today!

QuiltShopGal said...

You definitely made me laugh this morning. I enjoyed hearing how your mother recognized her room when she saw the door hanging quilt you had made her. And, I loved seeing the sweet collection of door hanging quilts you have made her. Truly a great idea and gift from the heart.

Great wall hanging. I remember that little devil from the cartoons and I think I even had a glass with his image when I was a kid.

Your wallhanging had me laughing as it reminded me of when my son was little -he had an imaginery friend - who made him to do.

Jackie C said...

I just love that flamingo!!! It made me laugh out loud. Is that a purchased pattern or did you come up with the idea yourself? Either way, it is adorable and! I’m sure it put a smile on many a resident’s face. Your Mom is a lucky lady.

What a great thing to do for your mother! I am sure it brightens her day to see these lovely little wall hangings hanging around her room. Seeing your projects definitely made me smile! I love the little devil you made for her. He is such a cute character.

I'm sad, I can't see the first three images in the post (the first one I can see is the pumpkin for Easter... Love the penguin... very cute and funny, the tree is gorgeous I can see how it would easily get taken. :)
So glad to see you again to.

I don't do mornings is so me, love it!

Gene Black said...

I don't do mornings either - must be a family trait on my Mom's side....she can easily sleep very late. I need coffee and time to be "nice" in the mornings.

Rosemary said...

Absolutely Perfect!!! I want to make each one of these!! Patterns? Thanks for putting a smile on my face during these difficult times. I'm 82 and every time they mention "old" people, I look around but never see any!! Makes me smile!!

What a wonderful post. Give your mom an extra {{{hug}}} for me, please. I used to sew wall hangings for my mom often to hang on her assisted living room door. She would have enjoyed each and every one you shared. This definitely brought a smile to my face but also a tear to my eyes. God bless you. I hope you are staying safe and healthy. ~smile~ Roseanne

What a sweet thing to do, and I remember some of the others, but fun to be reminded of them. I love this and that she knew her room by her door hanger. It is interesting how the little things are so important.

Those are some of the cutest (and funniest) quilts ever. How lovely that you can make your mom smile with them. The 'devil' is perfect.

Such cute projects. I can so relate to the 'I don't do mornings' and that Flamingo made laugh. For me, the funniest quilt I've seen. I'd like to make that one. lol

What a sweet tradition to have for your mom! I can see how a new door decoration would be a cause for conversation among all the residents. I hope you are all staying healthy.
