    A Quilt I made my Mom

    I made this for my mom. She got to enjoy it for a couple years before she passed away.

    very pretty, love the emb blocks. nice feathers too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    It's beautiful. It looks like she took very good care of it. What a treasure.

    So sorry for your loss. I still miss mine after 12 years. Your quilt is stunning and I bet it gave her so much pleasure admiring all your beautiful work and love!

    How beautiful! Like someone else said, I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I know exactly how bad that feels.

    It must bring back good memories. Love the colors.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    Beautiful work.
    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    beautiful quilt. It is good that you were able to express your feelings in this way while you still had her.
