2013 2013 2013 <div style="text-align: center;">I have to share with you this wonderful quilt that my Mom made.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qeXojQdxI4M/UifJRArGfQI/AAAAAAAANmI/nmqs9JXA7Tg/s1600/1a.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="325" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qeXojQdxI4M/UifJRArGfQI/AAAAAAAANmI/nmqs9JXA7Tg/s400/1a.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><a name='more'></a><br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;">You might remember my Mom from <b><a href="http://downtoearthstyle.blogspot.com/2012/03/where-did-you-learn-that.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: #660000;">this post</span></a>.</b></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-G-RkTWHd6pc/UifPV4xyS4I/AAAAAAAANno/Cd8bALgxL6Y/s1600/2+Collage.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-G-RkTWHd6pc/UifPV4xyS4I/AAAAAAAANno/Cd8bALgxL6Y/s400/2+Collage.jpg" width="280" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">I love her <i>so</i> much!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PqmgUXo6htc/UifJs6qSh4I/AAAAAAAANmY/gb3D0A5n5Pg/s1600/2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="288" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PqmgUXo6htc/UifJs6qSh4I/AAAAAAAANmY/gb3D0A5n5Pg/s400/2.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">About twenty five years ago she found this partially sewn quilt along with a fabric for the back at a tag sale for $5. (We call them garage sales in Utah but I feel like an' East Coaster' now so tag sale it is.)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-JEUc_4IOfvo/UifKgiEKVjI/AAAAAAAANmk/7wSxHTmpmt0/s1600/3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-JEUc_4IOfvo/UifKgiEKVjI/AAAAAAAANmk/7wSxHTmpmt0/s400/3.jpg" width="381" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">Mom thought "when the kids are grown I will do this quilt". So she held on to it all these years. And now - we are all grown and out of her hair (<b>six</b> kids -<i>whoa !!! - I can't imagine</i>!). Now she has more time to enjoy her many hobbies and talents.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CUNsxFFg4gw/UifLD1UiI3I/AAAAAAAANms/Hk7MmSLXHlY/s1600/4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CUNsxFFg4gw/UifLD1UiI3I/AAAAAAAANms/Hk7MmSLXHlY/s400/4.jpg" width="268" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">I am no quilter or sewer (as you may know from other posts) but my Mom taught me to do these things when I was young - I wish I had the patience. My hands start hurting just thinking of hand stitching that much fabric. So I appreciate this kind of work knowing a little bit of what it takes to get it done so beautifully. &nbsp;Look at the tiny stitches and detail - rolled edges by hand. It's a queen size, comfy and colorful piece. Hours and months of hard work.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LpoVWaWWs4M/UifLsnyfZJI/AAAAAAAANm4/DCQF6RNCCG4/s1600/5.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="266" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LpoVWaWWs4M/UifLsnyfZJI/AAAAAAAANm4/DCQF6RNCCG4/s400/5.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">Mom chose a different fabric for the back than what came with it.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-i0Fl8Q8rZEY/UifL-ZpIBHI/AAAAAAAANnA/Jn7UgxlB1R4/s1600/1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="266" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-i0Fl8Q8rZEY/UifL-ZpIBHI/AAAAAAAANnA/Jn7UgxlB1R4/s400/1.jpg" width="400" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Looks great together. The ladies at the fabric store told her this was a 1950's style print and that it was worth a little money. &nbsp;She even won a ribbon at the county fair. Wouldn't the person who started this quilt be so proud that somebody cared enough to finish her beautiful work of art?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Dj5mmDoledk/UifPQ2faVQI/AAAAAAAANng/ImDuM-fN43Y/s1600/6.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="200" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Dj5mmDoledk/UifPQ2faVQI/AAAAAAAANng/ImDuM-fN43Y/s200/6.jpg" width="181" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">&nbsp;In a way - I think my mom saw the beauty in another's hard work and felt that it was a shame to see it unfinished.
