    This is a turning twenty quilt that I made for my mom. I saw the coffee fabric, bought it and some coordinates, and found a pattern later. She LOVES coffee and chocolate, her dogs are her children (and more spoiled than I ever was), and we're in Tucson and she loves the Southwest, hence the fabrics. I like how the border really finished the quilt, and I'm proud of myself for the chili peppers in the corner; the seams lined up much better than I thought they would :D

    Not only a masterpiece, but one that has personal meaning! I love the way you chose the fabrics not only to look great together, but also to have a specific meaning to the recipient. GREAT JOB!!! Your mom will LOVE IT!!!
