    Sorry about your mother. I lost mine when I was 31, she was young and it was sudden. It will get better, it just takes time. I enjoyed your quilt thanks for sharing

    I'm sorry for your loss. My Mom passed away too early in 2006. She never saw any of my quilts as I started quilting the month after she passed. I'm sure your Mom is so very proud. Your quilt is beautiful. Time helps ease the pain.

    This is soooo beautiful. I'm very sorry about your mom. I lost mine in 1988 and I still miss her. My love of quilting came about 9 years ago, my first husband died of a long illness of over 10 years I was 42 when he died (he was 49). Needless to say, a friend of mine knew what I needed and it has been my therapy, and I am "in love". I wish that I could do beautiful work like you. It is truly beautiful.

    We share a common sorrow. I was working on an applique quilt while sitting at my Mom's bedside in '09 too. I just haven't been able to take it out and finish it up. Maybe this will inspire me to finish it.

    Did I send you the "rain" fabric for April? I designed April and May and quite a few people asked me to send them the rain fabric because they couldn't find it. I still don't have my quilt done. LOL! I think I got as far as July.
    Sorry to hear about your Mom.

    that is beautiful . . . and so much work and time has been put into it. Did you hand applique each piece or machine applique? It definitely needs to be finished!!

    I'm sorry about your Mom. Quilting is a good coping method. My son who is 34 has been diagnosed with ALS and I have really kept my mind very busy with quilting. Your quilt is lovely. Best wishes to you.

    Congratulations on a lovely work of art. I'm sorry for the loss of your mother - our mothers are usually the overriding influence in our lives and when we lose them, it leaves a huge gap. This quilt will encourage pleasant memories of her.

    Do you know if this pattern is still available? I'm not much of a TV person and don't even have cable, so pardon me if I sound weird for asking what/where HGTV is (truly, I didn't just drop in from another planet!).

    Sorry about your mom, that quilt is beautiful-I love birdhouses I've never seen them done in a quilt design before, now I'm tempted to make one.

    I'm really sorry to hear that you lost your mom. Quilting is therapy in itself. Your quilt is lovely. I love each individual blocks. It must take you a long time to finish each block. Keep on quilting, you do great work.

    No, but it must have been someone else that asked for the "rain" fabric as I have the squares finished to my Every Birdie's Home Tweet Home. I finished it 3 or 4 years ago, just haven't quilted it yet.

    Thanks, anyway.

    I hand appliqued it with a blanket stitch, but had to put it aside while Mama was sick. It was difficult though, due to the fact that it was hard to get the needle thru the fusible backing. Learned from that one, "Use a different fusible next time"
