I had hoped to have a new quilt made and ready for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival, but that didn't happen so I decided to show a quilt I made for my Mom for Mother's Day in 2004. I haven't shown this quilt on my blog before so it's new even to my regular readers.
Mom loved stained glass-look quilts, flowers, and hummingbirds. We always had a feeder outside the kitchen window so that we could watch them while we had breakfast. So when I saw this pattern I had to make it for her.
When she received the quilt she was so happy. The quilt followed her to a care center two years later and often when I would visit her it was laid on top of her bed. When Mom passed away in 2008 the quilt returned to me. It now resides in my formal living room on a beautiful sofa that Mom left to me. I think about her every time I pass it and enjoy the memories she left.
