Mom's Quilt

Now that Christmas is over, and I presented the gift to Mom, I can now finally post a picture of it. This is me, bragging on myself, something I normally don't do, but this time, I'm gonna.

I started this last January, taking a square at a time with me in the truck. I had so much fun with this quilt, picking out the colors, using my pattern to create the pitchers with just the right floral design, and doing the hand applique which I had not done before. Aside from having my mother-in-law show me how to do the hand stitching, this is the first quilt I have done completely by myself, start to finish. (except I took it to a quilter in Billings to be quilted, and let her do the binding too)

It turned out so beautiful, and I think Mom liked it. It made her cry, so I think she might have liked it some. I hope it brings lots of pleasure to her and she is reminded how much I love her every time she sees it.

Love you Mom!
