    My Mom passed a way recently. She was 93 and had a great life with my Dad. She loved people and loved to travel. But, best of all she loved my sister and I with all her heart, and we always knew it. I didn't think a plain picture frame would honor her the way I thought she should be honored, so I made this 20x20 wallhanging for my sister (she is not a quilter) and myself. I will hang mine in my quilting room so she can watch over me doing what I love to do.
    I love you Mom.

    Sorry for your loss. Your tribute to her is BEAUTIFUL & she is a beautiful lady. I can see she is filled w/love, & has passed that on to you.

    How special to put in your quilting room as a reminder every day of her love for you.

    Have a blessed week end & may all your quilts be filled w/love.

    I so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss your mom terribly.
    That is a wonderful way to memorialize your mom. Since your sister doesn't quilt, I'm sure it is even more special to her.
    Great job.

    What a beautiful wall hanging. Your sister will be thrilled to receive this special gift. Your mom will always be with you and now you can see her every time you quilt.

    Oh, how special. Sorry your mother passed. But this is a great tribute for her. I'm sure your sister loved her's, too.

    I lost my Mom two years ago and she was a quilter. I really miss her.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    The wall hanging is beautiful, I think the best part will be that whenever you are in your favorite space, your Mom will be with you.
