    It will feel like a mother's hug when she wraps up in her quilt. When my sister died, I didn't take anything valuable of hers but rather something I would use and think of her.

    What a beautiful comfort keepsake. Great job.

    I would never thought about doing this but it turned out so beautiful. May your sister feel the warmth of her mother's love as she wraps this around her. May you have the warmth of doing something extra special for your sister.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Wonderful story and a wonderful thing you did for your sister. She will think of your Mother and of you for quilting it for you. She will love it forever.

    What a treasure for your sister's heart you created. My mother died almost 28 years ago when I was 19 years old. How I wish I could wrap up in sheets that she slept on for just a moment in time---just to feel closer to something she touched-- sigh......

    You are a sweet, understanding sister for her. She will cherish this 'quilt' of her mom's sheets.
