    so some of you might remember my post a while back about making quilts from my brother's shirts who passed away 3 yrs ago. I am making one for myself, my mother and sister. Well the first one is done and this one is my mother's. It's very basic and simple as I'm not very good at quilting and I have zero time. My mom insisted I do this start to finish so I couldn't send it out to be quilted which made me sad, but it meant something to her for me to finish it, so I did my best. Here is hers, I'm excited to give it to her for Mother's day. We miss my brother dearly.

    Rymer that is beautiful and looks like you did a wonderful job with the quilting. It will have that much more meaning for your mom - I think you should stop saying you aren't good at quilting - really - it is such a nice job.

    I love the basic pattern you have chosen; letting the fabrics tell his story. A wonder tribute to him.
