    Today I finished binding a quilt that my Mom Appliqued, I put together and bound and Charlene Blain quilted. I took a picture of her today before she went home after spending a couple of days with me, to take care of a couple of Dr's appointments, dentist and pain management. She really is a trooper, and finished this quilt a couple of years ago. She gave me three to finish for her, and this is the first one. I ran out of binding material for the second one, and had to order it I sure hope they get it in. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy. It isn't perfect, I'm sure you'll find the mistakes in it.

    Your mom is adorable and so is her quilt. How wonderful that you were able to help her complete the quilt, I think it makes it that much more special!

    That's a lot of stitching! Your Mom looks really good for 85 & it's wonderful she still enjoys quilting. We all should be so fortunate.
