My Mom and the Quilt she made for my sister

I wanted to write a post about a beautiful quilt my mom made for my sister this Christmas.  It's very difficult to just write about a quilt when Mom is really the star.  I could try to describe the love and admiration I have for Mom, however we might not ever get to the quilt.  So, that will be for another post.

Suffice it to say, Mom is one beautiful and talented woman.



She works full-time as an accountant and has no plans to retire.  Yet, she still takes time to do wonderful things for her family.

Mom made a quilt for me several years ago, which I will post on at a later date.  She laughs when I tell her that quilt influenced me to built my new cottage, but it's true.

Anyway, as many of you know, Larry and I were very sick Christmas Day and didn't get to be with my mom and sister (and her family.)  So, I had not seen the quilt Mom worked on for a month and my sister unwrapped Christmas Day.

She sent me a picture of it this past Sunday.

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this picture attached to an email.  Each square is embroidered.  Mom uses a Bernina.  I am not certain of the model.  This quilt is king size.

Isn't is beautiful???  The quilt is almost a Harlequin design.  Mom is going to make me one!  Mine will be country blues.

So, that is it.  Can you imagine this spread across your bed!!!  It is truly a work of art.

Oh, one more thing.  Mom will be 80 years old in July, 2012.

Mom, I love you.....
