Mom and I have missed sewing together and are making up for lost time on this trip. We have one more week before she goes home and I’m sure she will finish another top or two.
I started quilting in 2000 and hadn’t even finished my first quilt before I convinced Mom that she had to try it too — 21 years later we’re still quilting together. We’ve talked some this visit about how much we have enjoyed all the years we’ve spent making quilts together and how it’s brought us even closer.
This photo of us was taken in December 2002 and the quilt was one I made and gave to her. A rare quilt of mine with appliqué! Mom still drapes this quilt across the back of her sofa every Christmas.
I’m hoping we have many more years of quilting together.
