The fun is at Amys Creative Side.
Amy ask us to pick a quilt that we made to link to her Blogger's Quilt Festival. We all know which one I picked. Ive made lots of tops, but I've only quilted a few.
My Grandma Jessie embroidered these blocks many years ago. She passed away in 1983. You can see a closeup of her block on my banner at the top of my blog.
I made them into a quilt for my Mom's 89th birthday It's hard to see, but I did hand quilt it. This was the third quilt I've finished and the only one I've hand quilted. It was fun to learn handquilting and just make up the design as you go.
When Mom was little, Grandma Jessie called her Betsy Bug.
So I decided to name this quilt "Flowers for Betsy Bug."
This is a picture of My Mom's first look at the quilt.
My Aunt Juanita is on the left. Juanita
passed away this year at 94 and is dearly missed.
Mom will be 91 in December.
It's not my best work, but it's my most loved work. I sat on my bed for many months with my legs crossed working on this quilt. By the time I was finished, it seemed like a part of me.
It please my Mom.
