I did it! I did it! Finished in time.

I finally got this done in time to take with me to Mom's for Mother's Day. I was beginning to think I'd never make it. There's one problem on the back but she's not a quilter and won't know.

The back story to this for those who are new - My Mom has always refused to have a quilt until she saw one similar to this (but not nearly as nice) in a quilt show. I asked her if she'd use a quilt if I made that one and she agreed. So, I took a picture and made this. In the process, I had shoulder surgery and couldn't sew for months. But, I found I could applique if I held it low in my lap and pulled the thread sideways. So, these flowers were a part of my recovery process and then once able to sew, I assembled it and now quilted it. Took awhile as life gets in the way but now it's done. Mom is only 94 and very frisky so I hope she gets a few years of enjoyment out of it.

And, I'm glad it's done as I have baby quilts on the back burner.

It's magnificent and knowing what you went through to get it done makes it even more impressive. There is so much love in this quilt that it makes me tear up just looking at it.

Linda, that is SOOO beautiful! Funny that your mom didn't want any quilts. But, my mom has some funny quirks, too (like she won't eat pizza for lunch, only for dinner).

I know your mom will love it.

I love how you say so casually, "so I took a picture and made this". It is stunning. You are so talented. I'm glad you were able to finally make your mom a quilt she will love.
