    Mom's 90th birthday quilt

    I made this quilt for my Mom's 90th birthday that was on Thanksgiving this year. All of my children, grandchildren and their spouses were there. I had told them there would be no Christmas if they didn't show up!

    A very happy birthday to her!

    Beautiful quilt. I know you really enjoyed having all of your family over.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
