Hello Em
Loved the quilt photos saw a sneak peak of them on Taras blog. It looks such a roomy quilt so lots of snuggling space. Happy memories.

Your youngest looks just like you as a baby.. wow.. and that quilt is gorgeous.. so happy your mom let you have it.. always something extra special about that kind of gift.. enjoy


Truly. Priceless. I need to finish up some of my quilt tops - my kids love the few lame quilts I made as a beginner, and now I make snazzy tops but never finish them...


Emily! What a gorgeous picture of you and your girls!


What a gorgeous quilt!!? She started it when she was 17? What an amazing thing to do and make... it makes you want to start some sort of legacy like that for your girls, not that I have any kids, and in a way that's perfect... if I start now I might just get somewhere by the time kids come into the picture. Truly gorgeous, your mum is an amazing woman!! And you guys look so happy bundled up in it together!


Just beautiful.

What a treasure! The picture brought tears to my eyes and makes me realize that I need to make things for my children and grandchildren so they always have a part of me. How lucky you are!

The quilt is beautiful. You look so pretty in the picture with the girls. I have a similar quilt. My grandma sewed for all of my cousins and I as kids and one year for Christmas she compiled all the scraps from our dresses and such into a lovely quilt which I now have on my bed.
