    Here's some photos of a quilt I started a few years ago, before my Mom got sick. She passed away in 2009 and I am trying to get back to working on the quilt to help me cope.

    I got the pattern from HGTV BOM.

    Your quilt is wonderful. I'm sorry you lost your mom. It does take a long time to heal, good memories help. My thoughts are with you.

    I think you have done a great job on your quilt. Maybe this will take your mind off painful memories and you will make new ones that are more pleasant. Just looking at this quilt makes me happy.

    Ohhh I knew that name sounded familiar - I saw and collected and wanted to make that same BOM.

    YOUR IS BEAUTIFUL - WONDERFUL FABULOUS!!! You choice of fabric really makes you look at each individual one you picked. LOVE the October one with the scarecrow on the pumpkin.

    Well Well done!

    I know how you feel losing your mom is so hard. When I sew think of all the times I watched my mother sew. Glad I have good memories to pass along to my childrem. You will have good memoires to pass along, also. She will live on in your heart.
    I love the quilt is is so cheerful.

    I have to say that I am not a fan of applique... but I really like your bird houses. They are just lovely.

    I do hope that you will be able to find peace with this quilt top - it is just lovely.

    While working on your quilt....allow the great memories of your mom to come to you! Look at the memories as a blessing and allow it to help soothe the pain you are still feeling. Maybe....you might even be lucky to feel the presence of your Mom while working on the quilt. Maybe you've waited almost a year for a reason....it takes time. Prayers and hugs to you!

    I'm so sorry about your mom. I bet she's the one pushing you to get it done! 8-) You did a lovely job on it. So much work! I love applique, it's my favorite.
