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.

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.
