Mom's Christmas Quilt

I surprised my mom with a quilt of her own for Christmas. I actually bought the fabric last Spring, but the day I planned to start it, mom and dad were in the accident. So I didn't get to start it until late fall of last year (2008). I thought there was no way I would finish it in time for Christmas, but I did. I know she wondered what I was doing with myself all of December - obviously I wasn't doing dishes, cleaning the house, making dinner, or Christmas cookies, for that matter! But each day she came home and I was exhausted. Well, it finally made sense Christmas morning. She loved it (and still does!) I took the quilt to Appoquinimink Quilting to have it quilted. Deanna was so kind, fast, and I must say, she did a beautiful job on the quilt. I don't think I will be able to go back to tying my quilts ever again! In fact, I am almost done with the top of a quilt for Daniel and I am thinking of taking it to her to quilt stars or horses onto it. Here are some photos of Mom's quilt (taken by Deanna - I have yet to take any of my own!)
