Happy Mother's Day~

My mom, circa 1978.  She still looks the same really...

My mom's mom, with me at my wedding, June 2003.

My dad's mom, January 2011.

My Mother-in-law, April 2010.

These are the women who, through their choices as women and mothers, have shaped my life the most.  And even though they (probably) don't read the blog, I just wanted to say thank you.

I also thought today was a good day to show off this heirloom.  The applique blocks were started by my maternal grandmother when her kids were small (1960s) but she found them too tedius and her mother finished the quilt.

The quilt is well worn, but still beautiful.

I love having this quilt that holds so much of my grandmother and great grandmother's time.

  8. Hi Jessica
    What a lovely heirloom you have.

    Whats your connection with Cape Cod?
    We stayed in Hyannis, and the quilts I found were on the beds in the inn we stayed at.

    I really wish I was binding my quilt already!
