quilt for mother

I made a chemo quilt for my sweet mother in 2005, and she passed away in April of 2010.   I keep it at our Colorado cabin.  When I asked her what color to make it, she picked green and purple.  Those just happen to be our favorite colors, hers was green and mine is purple : )  I made up a quick pattern and my LAQ friend, Debbie Croft,  quilted it as soon as I finished, so that my mother could have it for comfort and love.  My mother was a wonderful lady, and a joy to be around to the very end.

This quilt brought tears to my eyes. I lost my dad, much too early from a sudden pulmonary embolism in May 2008. He was 66. It hurts so much! Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing! Those are my my favorite colors too. Peace.

Oh what a sweet and kind gift for your mother. I love that you used each of your favorite colors. So nice to have something physical that once comforted her and now can comfort you. Blessings.
