    I created this quilt for my mother. Started off as a Garden Patch and then i added the applique flower boxes and roses down the side from different magazines. So in the end, i have made an original. My mother was so very excited to receive this. I also remember to label the back of it which has a story of why i did what i did. It related to her life. I got the quilt professionally joined and that has made a huge difference. It was done beautifully. I am extremely happy with the end result. Hope you enjoy looking at the picture.

    I love it. I'm always impressed with applique (which I can't do well).
