My mother's 2009 Christmas present

I have been so busy quilting and enjoying retirement that I just haven't taken the time to post on my blog for so long. But reading everyone else's blog gives me incentive to start posting again.

This is the quilt I made for my mother for Christmas last year. Black and red are her favorite colors so I tried to incorporate them in the quilt as much as possible.

This was a fun quilt to make. I love all the bright colors on a black and white background.

I quilted a lattice design trying to keep the quilting simple since the flowers were busy.

There is a small amount of embroidery on the birds and snail.

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday. I am so anxious to start making some of the recipes I have found on other blogs.
