    Carpenter Star Lap Quilt for Mom's 85th Birthday

    I made this for my Mom's 85th Birthday, It is actually for her single bed, but needs a pillow case to match...which will be forthcoming. The Quilt is machine pieced and hand quilted. Thanks for looking

    Great job, love the colors. The Carpenter Star/Wheel pattern is on my list. I keep thinging I'm getting closer and then something else grabs my attention. LOL

    It's gorgeous! I love the two tones on white...it just makes it "pop"! Nice job
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Does your mom quilt too? I'm sure she will treasure it, beautiful to look at as she snuggles under it! The flowers you hand quilted are pretty.

    Looks like she is a happy lady. Good for you. I miss my mom. She and I used to quilt together. Glad you still have her
