    Speaking of a long time...

    Helloooo quilters -

    Long time no see, read, post...etc. I have been away for a bit, so I understand if no one really remembers. But I did get a ton of inspiration and encouragement from the quilters here when I first started, but then, things just got busy and I didn't have time for a lot of my fun stuff.

    Fortunately, before I left I posted a picture of my finished top - a quilt for my mom - waaaaaayyyy back in Sept of 2014. While I didn't actually get to quilt it myself (sent it to a wonderful, local long armer) I finally got it finished and gave it to my mom this past Oct 2...Her 79th birthday!

    She was so happy to see it again. I pieced the top on her sewing machine, mostly at her house while I didn't have my own dedicated sewing space. Needless to say she was very surprised to finally see it done! She immediately declared it a "family heirloom" that must stay in the family, hopefully for generations. LOL - I almost cried.

    Anyway, wanted to share that it finally got done and inspired me to try and get back in the swing of things. I've got another one pieced and ready for the long armer, and three smaller tops pieced that I think I might be able to straight line quilt myself! I've definitely missed the inspiration of these boards, hopefully I can get back in the swing here too.

    Here's mom with the front, and the back (I actually appliqued a heart-shaped label on a leftover strip from the front), and a new addition to the family since I was last here - my great-niece Aria - who's taken a liking to the quilt as well!

    Thanks for looking!

                        I love this quilt. I really like the colors and story. Your Mom's reaction to this quilt, and your reaction to her reaction.....are why we do what we do.
                        And what a blessing to be able to sew with your Mom at your side! So sweet!
                        Welcome back, like Bubby said "we saved a place for you".
