    4th of July Mini for Mom's 94th birthday

    I make Mom quilts to hang outside her apartment in her senior living community. This is the one I'm sending her today. Good for Memorial Day (her birthday) and 4th of July. I don't usually use patterns but this one was quick (for me) and fun to make.
    Hope you enjoy the quilt.

    The free pattern is Uncle Sam's Bouquet from Cherry Blossoms http://www.cherryblossomsquilting.com/lets-celebrate/

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That will certainly brighten up her doorway and be a "conversation starter".
