    Default My first quilt!

    This is my first quilt. The points aren't perfect and neither is the quilting, but I'm okay with that. I had made it for my mother and she loved it, for the short time she got to enjoy it at least.

    I even stitched a tag for the back, with a line from a book she used to read to us when we were little. She loved that line so much, she signed every Christmas/birthday card that way. "Love you forever, like you for always".

    Wow that's a beautiful job you did! Welcome to the Forum, I am guessing you are new here, and I am sorry about the loss of your mother. I am glad you finished her quilt and that she was able to have it for a little while at least. I bet it meant the world to her, especially that sweet saying on the label.

    Welcome to the forum. I can't believe that's your first quilt. You did a wonderful job and it warms my heart to know that your mom got to enjoy it, even for a short time. I'm sure that it was very special to her.
