    This is actually an older quilt I made in 2007 to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. Mom has since passed away and my dad gave it back to me. I haven't decided what to do with it but I'll probably just display it.

    Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoy!

    It's a beautiful quilt. I have a quilt on the bed that I made as a Christmas gift for my parents in 1990-something. Now that they're both gone, it takes on even more significance. When I'm snuggled underneath, it helps me remember all the wonderful times we had together and how pleased they were to receive the quilt.

    Beautiful. I'm sure your Mom enjoyed having a quilt made by you. Thoughtful of your father to return it to you.

    You did a lovely job. It's an awesome quilt! At some point in time I would want to snuggle under it, especially if I just felt like I needed a hug.
