    She's my boss and MOM stands for "my other mother" which is exactly what she is, she's seen me through 2 kids and 3 husbands and a LOT of bumps. When I gave it to her this morning she wouldn't let me take her picture cause she was crying too much!

    You've outdone yourself again. Beautiful and so special for your MOM. I love the definition "My Other Mother". She must be a very special lady!

    Hmmm,

    I would be crying too... but no, no no... you didn't make it for m...

    oh wait, that's bad form. I'll start over...

    Very very nice. The reason I started quilting was because no one would make me a quilt. Now your MOM doesn't need to learn.

    Great job...

    the name of the pattern is "Warm Wishes" and it's free from McCall's quilting website.

    and I'm sorry but she said it's hers!

    That really is beautiful, Kathy. The cobalt blue really sets it off.
