Whew! Sorry it took me a bit to post this photo.....I thought I could pull this one out of my hat and it took me a wee bit longer than I thought to finish this quilt top - those trees in the middle were a bear! But it is done! My mother left a sticky note in my 2003 December issue of Fons and Porter 'Love of Quilting' magazine saying she would really like this quilt. I don't know when she left the sticky there, but I only found it when we were moving from our home in August 2012. I decided it was time to make it for her! I think she will be surprised. I am going for a visit this week to Illinois - fun with family!
And yes - it is snowing and very cold there, but I am up for the challenge!
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
