    This was fun to quilt...

    My friend & former neighbor asked me to quilt a top that her mother had made. Her mom had died before she had a chance to quilt it. I had a lot of fun quilting this quilt. I bet her mom had a lot of fun putting it together, too. I sure hope she likes what I did.

    What a cute quilt. I'm sure your friend is very happy with your quilting and will treasure this.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    It is darling and whimsical, it is sure to bring a smile to your friend's face, what a wonderful keepsake for her, a blessing knowing her mom was working on it to now have it finished, surely a treasure for her. I love the piano key border and the quilting brings it all together.

    I wish I knew the pattern name. I wouldn't mind making one for myself. Each block represents a month.

    How cute. I'm sure she had just as much fun making it as you had quilting it.

    Very nice, and very special to have that your friends precious mom worked on. I have some things of my mothers, and they are very dear too me.

    That is SO cute! I love the blocks she did....and all the hand stitching is awesome! I wonder if there was a pattern or if she designed it herself. What a wonderful keepsake to have from her mother!
