Holly the quilt looks so pretty, and I agree that she would love it. What also struck me was that my story is the same. I didn't start quilting until my mother passed away. My mother made all of us girls clothes when we were growing up, and she made her own too. She loved to quilt just like your mom.

Thanks for sharing this with me.

I'm sure she'd be proud. What mom was ever disappointed when their child showed interest in something they themselves enjoyed. Soft inviting quilt!

Beautiful quilt...so interesting how we can identify people in our fabric choices and keep them close.

How wonderful to have something that reminds you of your mom in a special way. I lost my mom 9 years ago and I still miss her and many things remind me of her but what you have is tangible and enjoyable.
