Mom's Quilt

This is a quilt that was made for Tanya's mom.  Two years ago my mom was in Salt Lake City when she had her leg amputated.  We ended up never getting her quilt  started let alone done, because we spent the time with her instead.  This was pieced by me, Richard told me it was my mom, so it was my project.  He did quilt it.  I struggle with getting a good 1/4 seam, so a few places were zig zag to fix problems found after washing.  Richard did quilt it and bound it. We gave it to my mom at Thanksgiving.  She has been sick with Pneumonia three time this year, so I wanted her to see it, in case something happened. I haven't had the best luck the last few years with families health.  She really enjoyed it and was brought to tears.  It is a good size lap quilt.


This post was started by Tanya last year and its time to finish it and get it posted.  I have since heard from my mother in law that this is a cherished quilt and has put it up so that the grand kids can not get it dirty.  I think it meant more to her knowing that her own daughter pieced the quilt.  It is not a perfectly pieced as some of the quilts I have done but it was done with love from her daughter.  Give Tanya a big hand for this fantastic finish.

I am so happy that she is using and enjoying it. I stayed at a home recently where I saw a lovely quilt in one of the guest rooms. It was used to cover the bed. She told me it was made for her bedroom but she didn't use it because she didnt want to get it "messed up" - I told her that you can wash quilts. But I doubt she will use it.

Big Kudos to Tanya for making this labor of love.

Of course she loved it, she's a mom! I don't know who picked the colors/fabrics, but they are great together. I have friends who say done is better than perfect, and they are absolutely right!

The love that goes into the quilt is the most important part. Pretty quilt.
