    Stunning! So happy you made that for yourself. I don't think I have one thing that I made that I kept for myself. m

    I did not make this for myself. The neighbor girl wanted something special for her grandmother and asked me to make her a picture quilt. Since I am still down in the back and have plenty of idol time I told her sure.... lol..

    What a wonderful mother's day gift. I'm sure it brought tears to one mother's eyes. Your generosity is to be commended. Thanks for sharing.
