Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's . I hope your day has been special.
Today, I presented what I called "reverse Mother's Day" gifts. My mom was working on a flower basket quilt when she passed and it remained unfinished for several years now. She needle turned appliqued all the blocks, and then hand quilted them. She did this quilt-as-you-go method for several of her quilts. Momma was in her early 80's when she was making these blocks.
I took the flower baskets and finished off the block with binding and a sleeve. My husband made block stands for the blocks and then I gave each of the granddaughters a block as a gift from their grandmother on Mother's Day. I hope they will display the block each Mother's Day as a remembrance of what a great woman their grandmother was. I also kept one for myself and gave on to a sister-in-law. I have pictures of the blocks below.
