A Christmas quilt

When I have the time I love to sew or create something. 3 years ago when my mother got really ill and we thought we were going to lose her I started a quilt for her to have during her hospital stays. She loves purple and having some really pretty purple pansy fabric on hand it was easy to decide what to use. The kids even chipped in by sewing a block a piece and signing them. Thankfully she got better and the quilt top got put away. My two best friends, who are quilters also, have been bugging me to get it done. Mom's health is not very good and we've made tough decisions about where we want to go with her health care next year. So I knew I needed to get it done. The top was originally a twin, remember she was going to have a lot of hospital stays. I decided to make it a double though and added extra borders. My two wonderful friends had it machine quilted and we gave it to Mom for Christmas. She was thrilled.
Mom gets her quilt and she is thrilled.

Here's the front side. She's tickled purple so to speak.

Happy New Year everyone. May you and your's have a blessed year.

Love, The Kramers
