My mom sent me a lovely lap quilt for my birthday. She spoils me with these beautiful creations. I have a hope chest full of quilts of all sizes and colors. I can’t wait to have a home one day (full of wee ones) to really show off her artistry.
Yep, not going to lie. I sat down and cried my eyes out when I opened this. It is hard to receive such a sentimental and thoughtful gift and not be able to hug the person who gave it to you. I truly miss my family.
Have you seen Jan’s quilts? I think if she and my mom ever met, they’d be thick as thieves. Her work is so pretty too. I simply don’t have the patience for this type of art. I think it really takes a special person to piece together fabric with such precision. It makes me respect the Gee’s Bend ladies and women everywhere who’ve taken on this practical art form as a way of expressing their creativity.
The yellow in the quilt matches my living room perfectly. Thank you again Mama!
