Silly Mama Quilts Review and Giveaway!!

I had the privilege of reviewing a fabulous table runner made by Brooke who is the creator of Silly Mama Quilts.  I first noticed Brooke's talent when I visited her blog and saw this adorable Caterpillar Quilt that she made with Eric Carle characters.  I absolutely love these characters and think this quilt is a keepsake!

Brooke generously sent me a gorgeous table runner entitled "Flower Shower." 

It has bright, snazzy colors with flashy flowers that seem to be twirling along the border of the runner.  The complimentary colors bring together the theme of flower shower.  Brooke has also quilted a wavy design in the middle and a more intricate pattern along the edges.  She uses one of the middle squares with polka dots as the backing for this trendy table runner.  I can tell that she takes great care to be precise and exact to make a very professional masterpiece of creativity!

I chose to display Brooke's Flower Shower table runner on my hutch cupboard so I can gaze at its beauty every day!  Here are pictures of the front and back.

Let's get to know Brooke a little bit:
*Where did you come up with the name Silly Mama Quilts? The name Silly Mama Quilts comes from having 4 kids ages 5-22.  So I often call myself a silly, silly mama.
*How long have you been quilting?  I started when my oldest was 2- so a very long time!
*What do you like best about quilting? I discovered how much I enjoy experimenting with colors and fabric that I wouldn't normally choose for me.  I truly enjoy making handmade projects with the latest fabric lines and ideas.
*What is the focus of your shop? Fresh and fun!!
Thank you, Brooke!!
