    Today is the one year anniversary of my mother's death. I live far away from the rest of the family, so decided to celebrate by make a quilt that reminds me of Mom.
    I am calling this Understated Elegance.
    Mom was a great lady and she was in charge of the Officer's wives club so she would throw these very elaborate parties dressed to the nines and make it look so easy.
    She would also organize a neighborhood barbeque with enough food to feed the state, and make everyone feel as if they were special.
    She used to say she was nothing but a mom.... but oh how much that title ment went referencing everything she did.
    So here is my quilt, and yes my son is hiding behind it again this time.

    colors are grey, yellow, black paisley

    OMG that is beautiful. I love the fabrics and they go together to make a classic refined quilt. Just like your mom. What a lovely tribute to her.
