    Hi y'all!

    I wanted to share with you all the joy that our fellow Quilting board members have shared with me.
    A couple months ago my mother was having some really severe medical issues and was bed ridden. My mom and I both love quilting, and I wanted to make a quilt for her to try to give her some comfort. I was really new to quilting, didn't have a stash, and wasn't able to afford the cost of new fabric.
    After sharing my situation with you wonderful, fabulous quilters, I was inundated with fabric, support and inspiration.
    I have finally been able to finish a turning twenty quilt top with all the wonderful, wonderful florals that I was sent (takes me forever I hand piece and quilt) And I want to share it with you all. I'll update with quilting progress and the finished product, and hopefully with my darling mother enjoying it. (by the way she is doing much better, and is now able to walk again )

    Thank you all so much.

    (sorry the pics aren't great)
