Mom's quilt

I can't believe a month has gone by. My last post was July 4. The next day my sister called from Ohio and I flew back right away. My mom, who was my first sewing inspiration and a truly wonderful woman in many ways passed away on July 10th. She gave me a great love to create and sew, a desire to make wonderful things for those I love and passed on the pure joy of sewing. Thank you Mom!
I made this quilt for My mom and dad about 5 years ago when they were both here. My mom went shopping with me and chose the fabric, she had some vision back then, and she sort of chose the pattern too. I just returned home last Sunday and it came home with me. So, My finish this week was one from a few years back. It is a queen size and looked wonderful on her bed. She really liked it.

It's really a very pretty green.
Here's my sweet mom with my sister and brother as well. Taken last summer. She was 91 and amazing. Love you Mom!!

  1. Sorry to hear about your mom. The quilt you made her is beautiful and I am sure it gave her a lot of joy. She looks really happy to be surrounded by her children in the picture.

  2. Thinking of you and your family. I hope the quilt is a sweet reminder of her. It sure is beautiful. I have a quilt I made for my grandmother. She passes away at 91. Every time I see it I think of her and how much she loved it on her bed.
