    My mom turned 88 today. I took her several dish gardens to enjoy and keep healthy. Here is a picture of the top of the quilt I made for her last year on her birthday. She loves anything Asian. I keep taking it out of the closet and she keeps having them put it back to keep it nice. So this year she got plants!

    I even had a LAQ finish it.

    that's my mom. My aunt made her one for her wedding, 19 years ago, (before my mom got into quilting) and a little pillow to match it, and the pillow is on the bed, the quilt has never been. She says it's because the other quilt she got, a double wedding ring that someone bought somewhere, was on her bed and it got a little stained and tore in a few places. I pulled out the quilt and didn't notice til she pointed it out. I got out my hoop and a needle and stitched it back up. But the quilt she gets for christmas this year is going on her bed whether she likes it or not because it is becoming a pain in the butt to hand quilt.

    But the quilt is beautiful by the way! Tell her how happy it would make you if she used it, maybe she'll use it once in a while

    Very pretty. I am using some of the same geisha fabric in a quilt I am making as well, only mine was predominently red and gold in color. It is a beautiful fabric and you did a great job displaying it in your mom's quilt.
