    My mom turned 96 yesterday. I surprised her with a lap quilt that I made for her. I think the pattern is Warm Wishes (I'm not good with pattern names.) She loved it. You may be surprised to learn that most of the fabric came from Walmart; only 2 fabrics come for Joann's. The backing fabric Mom gave to me and said to "use it for something"! Little did she know that I would use it for her!

    Beautiful quilt, colors and Mom. Yes, the pattern is Warm Wishes, I plan to make one sometime soon.
    Your Mom looks younger than 96.
