    I love this, in fact, I love everything about it.....the story, the fabrics, the wisdom of the daughter (she knew her mother would approve and appreciate), the pattern, the quilting, and you for taking the opportunity to make something very special. A wonderful tribute to a lady who loved fabrics so much so that she was on a lifetime mission to collect extraordinary ones. Thank you for sharing.

I used antique white muslin(also included with fabric) for the backing -non scrimed wool batting( batting was a gift) and I hand quilted it. It has the softest drape and I love it !!

    And thank you to suern3 for posting how to upload pics from you iphone. WOOHOO !!!
    What an absolutely WONDERFUL thing to do with her mother's fabric!! Any what a beautiful job you did on both piecing and quilting!

    So well said.....it is a delightful quilt pattern for the fabric and your quilting is so appropriate.....I can only give you a ton of kudos....
