Quilt Love

 
Mom love this book
especially the quilt on the cover...
 
she has it on her little table
looking through it often
telling me she has three quilts
picked out
to stitch for us girls
when she gets home
 
 
Her hands don't work like they used to
she can barely get through her name
with lots of encouragement
 
But dreaming of fabric
stitching quilts
sharing with her daughters
brings such a sparkle to her eyes
 
 
I recently found out our most local quilt shop
is going out of business
on the 15th of next month
everything will be 50% off
 
I told Mom about it and she feels bad
after all
the owner is only 85 years old!
 
when I asked her what she wanted
she said all of it
I asked if she was sure
since we already have so much at home
 
so she amended her request
only all of the
fabric
thread
and batting
 
no need for anything else

LOL, she really wants to sew and talking about it and planning is just as fun for her and you. I was able to get a couple of things with our store sale, but I stuck to tea stained a few fat quarter treats.

Your mom has a great sense of humor which she may or may not realize she has. In reality I'd probably opt for just rug binding since I've all the wool and patterns I could possibly use in two lifetimes.

I hope I always want to sew! I'm sure it gives her hope too. And think of all the goodies she is thinking of making for her girls. Take care dear.
