    Mom's Flower Quilt

    My mother has been an outdoor person all her life and loved planting in the yard and garden. She especially loved flowers. So when she had to give all that up and move into a retirement home we decided to give her a lap quilt that would let her always have the flowers she loved. We found a wall hanging kit and decided to add two borders to make it a lap quilt. She really loved it and has shown everyone in the retirement community her "year around flowers". It was simple but loved. We added a flower motif for the backing too.

    Such a pretty quilt. The back is as beautiful as the front.
    Bet your mom will love it.
