In August 2018, Mama and I spent several hours together sorting through her fabric stash, quilting supplies and patterns. Despite being very tired, Mama had a plan for me. In the quiet of our time together she asked a very special request. She asked if I would consider making quilts for her beautiful sisters using her stash. Mama's request came with great love and pride. She knew she was sick and knew she would never be able to make quilts for her.
I promised her that day, that the quilts I make for her would be constructed with as much love as she would put into them herself. We spent time choosing patterns and fabrics. We laughed and we cried!
This quilt is a traditional disappearing four patch block using a delicate floral fat quarter bundle from Moda fabrics that Mama thought you would like. I completed one block and got her approval to continue. The finished quilt has one layer of 100% wool over Hobb's 80/20 batting.
