During cold winter days, I seek the comfort of quilted flannel. Being wrapped in the fabric chosen and sewn by my Mother enfolds me in both warmth and her love.
Mom started quilting after we were all grown up. It became her primary creative outlet and a meditation. Now, instead of velveteen dresses we are blessed with beautiful quilted blankets. The quilt above is called "Amid the Cold of Winter". The quilt label on the back includes a copy of a cardinal that my Dad, who is no longer with us, drew for one of the family Christmas cards. I am lucky to have a number of quilts made by the artist known as "Mom". Thank you Mom, for all of your love and encouragement.
Great Grandma, Me and Mom
Wishing you a wonderful holiday and many blessings in the New Year!
