This quilt has many memories. Chris and her sister worked on it over the years with their mom. Now that their mom is moving into a new stage in her life, it’s time to finish it up, or as Chris would say, “Get ‘er done!” It’s such a beautiful and calming quilt, and when their girls look at it, hopefully they will remember all the good times with their mom.
In keeping with the feel of the original quilting – some of the quilting had been done – I did a 1/4″ stitch away from the seam in both directions. And then to add a little something, around the border and into the corners I did some feathers. It still has an old-fashioned feel, but with a little something special. Something special; just like the relationship between a mother and daughters.
