    My MIL made all 9 of her grandkids quilt tops several (like 9 or 10) years ago & had them draw numbers for which one they would get. Six years later she had finished 1 (she ties them) & was going in order of age, so seeing as my kids are the youngest I offered to finish theirs for her or they would probably never get them! I wanted to finish at least one before I saw her this summer because she always asks me about them (even though 10 years later she has still finished just one!) I can relate though, the sandwiching is my least favorite part of quilting & must be hers too! So here is our joint effort, her top & my quilting. I had fun practicing my FMQ on it & had never done FMQ on such a big one-it's a queen.

    Looks good -- and having both of you work on the quilts makes them even more special. I wonder if DD and DIL would like to finish some of mine LOL

    Nice quilt. Nice solution to a potential problem, or disappointment.

    Nice work...maybe you and your mom can work together to finish the others and get them off the bucket list.
