    90 yrs. young signature quilt

    This a signature lap quilt my sil (from CO)and I did for her mom's 90th birthday. It was a surprise and it was a wonderful day for her and all that attended. Almost all the spaces were used for well wishes and signatures. Thanks to the board that offered advise about the embroidery. Each of us did our half (using materials used in family wedding and other family quilts)and then when she came in we joined the two pieces and put on the finishing touches. The flying geese were the '1 seam' method demoed by Ricki Tims. Sooooo easy!! The backing was a cuddly fleece. She is already using it. Enjoy. Hope the pic turns out ok.

    What a wonderful gift you girls made. Dorothy must feel very special to have people who love her so much.

    Lovely gift.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
