|One of Mom's First Quilts - Hand Appliqued|
My Mother passed away this evening January 17, 2012.
Mom was patient and kind. She made friends easily and made it a priority to cultivate friendships. She nurtured a positive attitude through all of life’s storms and tough choices. She always tried to do right by her family and friends. Mom was buoyant and hopeful, always seeing the glass half-full. She was my friend.
We had lots of fun traveling together, going on quilting retreats and sharing quilting fun. She would brag about my quilts to her friends – I can hear her say “she’s a real artist”.
Mom learned to sew as a young wife, after moving to California from Louisiana to build a life with Dad. She was diligent and meticulous with her sewing and she became an excellent traditional quilter.
It was my privilege to help her finish her projects as she got older and quilting became more difficult.
I miss you Mom. Rest in Peace. I love you.
