A Quilt for my Belle-Mere

I was so excited to finally make a quilt for my wonderful Mother-in-law.  She really is so great to me and loves her Grandchildren so much! (I guess she thinks Patrick is okay too :o) We are so blessed.  I wanted this one to be special.  I decided to go with a pinwheel pattern.  I loved cutting up the tiny squares into half triangles.  Then, as I laid it out, it just didn't look the way I had it in my head.   Ever have that happen to you? 

 So, I did some rearranging and decided to do more of a color-gradient quilt. Then, I embroidered a Bible verse on it.  I like how it turned out!  And when she opened it on Christmas (I could watch using Skype.  Yipee!)  she seemed to really like it.

I love you Denise!  You're the best Mom in law!!

I can finally show some of the Christmas gifts that I made and sent to Florida.  So, for the next few Fridays I'm going to be linking up with Crazy Mom quilts for her Finish it Up Friday.  Love the quilting inspiration from that blog!


  1. What a beautiful quilt! I'm sure your mom-in-law will love it.

  2. Lovely. The top half almost looks like a heart. I'm sure your mother in law will treasure it.

  3. What a lovely quilt and gift! I love your blog, you are certainly living an adventure and what a great upbringing for your family. Best wishes to you all.
