My Mom's Gift...


Remember these blocks?  Every Christmas I make something for my Mother. I should have done the Christmas gift throughout the year--- I didn't. Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda....Next year.  I remembered I had these blocks and coupled with this fabric it will look nice on my Mom's Louisiana table.  I mailed their Christmas packages on Monday--- this got mailed a day later... But at 80+ years old I wasn't going to save it until next Christmas.  Some things just won't wait.

It's December now--- see the snow covered steps.

You're absolutely right, some things won't and shouldn't wait. Precisely why I made all of my grandchildren quilts this year. And why I'll start my daughter's wedding quilt early next year even though she's not engaged yet. And have a couple of baby quilts in reserve for her.
Your mom will love her quilt, it's absolutely beautiful!

A lovely quilt for your mother. Red and green fits the holiday theme.

I don't know how many times I have thought the same as you. Why did I not start earlier? I have plans in my head and think I have plenty of time ahead of me. Then all of a sudden, the time is here and little done in preparation.
