Pieces From the Past

A Mother’s Day Quilt

quiltI certainly know how to make my mom cry!  This Mother’s Day I gave my mom the quilt I had Megan from A Crafty Handful finish from some of my grandmother’s quilt squares.  Even when I met Megan at Starbucks to pick up the finished quilt I got chills and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up a bit.  She did an AMAZING job on the quilt and surpassed my expectations.

When I gave the quilt to her, this is what she focused on:

labelI’m almost hesitant to show the video of her opening her Mother’s Day gift because I honestly hate the way I sound on camera.  Yes, I know I have a crazy southern accent and I still haven’t embraced it at the age of 31.  I’ll confess I was hoping my voice wouldn’t be heard in the video, but it was.  I apologize.  Since it was such a special/ thoughtful gift I’ve decided to show y’all the video (the condensed version).

Here are some more pictures I took of the big day:

I managed to capture her reaction when I told her the quilt was made from Nanny’s squares.
