    My son is a sweetie. He's 26 yrs old. Last weekend he spend alot of time with me in my sewing room while I quilted this quilt. We laughed and talked and had a great time. Today while I was putting the binding on he came in and asked if he could have this quilt, I asked why and he said because every time he looks at it he thinks of what a wonderful time we had while I was working on it. Then he added that he is so proud to have such a great Mom and how talented I am. ( Now I'm crying again) This was to be for my sister for Christmas - oh well - sorry sis, you lost out.

    How utterly precious. You just can't place a value on moments like that.

    Absolutely LOVE the quilt. It is stunning.

    Is this your design..... or did you use a pattern? I would love to know the name of it.

    Don't forget to put the memories on the tag in the back of the quilt. That is the best gift he will ever get. Great to hear of so much love that a mother and son have.
    God Bless!!
