    Lap quilt for my mom

    My mothers favorite items in life are birds and flowers/plants.. she has a long driveway (3 blocks long), and you would see different flowers and bird feeders along the way. Then get to her house and her yard is huge, with many flowers and bird feeders again. Inside her house was full of plants also.. it is not near as bad now because of her age and health. Then her favorite color is yellow.. put these all together and this is what she got... hope you enjoy..

    So pretty. Very delicate. Your mom will love it.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    what a wonderful tribute to your mother! You did a wonderful job capturing all the wonderful things you admire about her. I actually got all teary eyed when I saw what a beautiful quilt you had made from such beautiful memory's of all her passions and loves. Great great job. IMO it couldn't be more perfect for your mom. She'll love it forever!
