    Geheichnis fuer Mutti

    That is the title of this little quilt (57" square). It will be sent to my Mom who is in an assisted-living facility in Germany after a bad fall. "Geheichnis" doesn't translate literally as it means different things to different people. The closest I can come is "Comfort" - so I hope she will feel comforted.

    Very pretty. Since you can't be there to wrap your arms around her, the quilt will do it for you. Hope she heals well.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Each pinwheel can be a hug for your mother.

    What a sweet gift for her, it'll surely be a hit with her and probably the staff, too.

    Thanks y'all. I made her one before and she keeps it folded up on the couch. She shows it to everyone who comes to the house "May I show you what my daughter made for me?" ....and then she will fold it up again. I just want her to USE this one. Been working on a poem to go with it - the adult version of "It's OK if you sit on my quilt..."

    It doesn't translate from German to rhyme but one of the lines = This quilt is like the elderly with wrinkles. lol

    So sorry about your Mom and her fall. Hope she progresses well. I am sure she will receive great "comfort" from this special quilt.

    I'm sure she will be comforted by your quilt just knowing her daughter did it. Good job,

    what a lovely quilt you made. Must be so hard being so far away from her. I am sure she will enjoy this beautiful quilt you made her.
