mother's day quilt

Well, the doctor wanted to wait until Tues to
convince Little H it is time to come.
So, we are headed that way Monday.

About 20 years ago, we started a friendship with
Mr Earl and Miss Sally.
They became "another mom and dad"
to Hubby and I and "adopted grandparents"
to our kids.
They have loved us and supported us and
have been a part of all the big moments in our lives.
We always remember them on Mother's Day and
Father's Day....but sometimes it is hard to decide
what they would like.
This year, since I've started quilting, I decided to make 
a quilt for Miss Sally.

She loves the color green and flowers, so I started with the fabric
 I used at the top, middle and bottom...it has a green 
background with two different rose colored flowers.

Then I chose coordinating prints and solids.

 I was happy with the way it turned out...

 and she was very surprised!

 Even Mr Earl said, "Those are your colors!"
That made me happy!

God certainly blessed us abundantly more than we could
have ever asked when he gave us these two people to love!
Happy Mother's Day, Miss Sally!!


  1. They definitely are her colours. Beautiful!

  2. What an adorable quilt! Simple yet striking! Of course she was thrilled with it ... what a sweet way to show your love.

  3. A beautiful, thoughtful gift for a wonderful relationship in your families life.

  4. Beautiful quilt! Hope all goes well when Little H comes. Be safe and enjoy that little one. Hugs

  5. I love her and you AND the quilt! Very nice "beach-y" picture of the two of you!

  6. What a beautiful and thought gift!!

  7. As usual, I'll chime in after everyone else has commented with what I would have said! :) It's wonderful to share your talent with a special lifelong friend.
