Mom's quilt is finished. I put the binding on it yesterday. I do hope she will like it. I used four blue shirts of dad's.
You can see the plaid better in the close ups.
She chose all of his shirts, so I know she'll like the fabrics. I just hope she likes what I've done with them. This time of year is difficult, as dad passed away on Dec. 17th. The holiday decorations remind me of when I first heard the news. And every cute little old man with white hair in the mall makes me think of how he could get lost before we made it to the first store. He was so good at disappearing and then magically reappearing just before it was time to leave. He was clever like that.
I've got the blocks cut for my sister's quilt. I am still not sure how it's all going to turn out, but I think it will just let me know as it goes. Your quilts speak to you too don't they?
Enjoy every stitch!
