|Chevron Quilt is finished and turned in for the raffle.|

I was able to get the binding on the little Chevron quilt and turn it in for next year's Mini Quilt Raffle at Quilt Fest. I felt like I needed to finish something, anything way ahead. Instead of stitching down the binding the day before the baby arrives! This is my TGIFF post, check out everyone else's finishes!
Last week I wrote a post about the T-shirt quilt that I had made for my brother. I want to thank everyone for their kind comments. I had a wonderful email from Becky. She told me about the memory quilt she made for her Mother. I asked her if I could share her story with you and she said yes.

Reading the story made me cry, because I was thinking of my mom.
She passed away 3 years ago in December, she was 79.
About 3 months before her 75th Birthday she mailed me her Square Dance Skirts and Vests. She wanted me to make a quilt out of them for her Bed. I made fans out of them and called it Grandma Promandes across the floor. It will never win any contest, neither. I got it sewn machine quilted just following the fans and had the binding machine sewed on before we flew to Minnesota for her Birthday. Every Night I went to bed early and worked on getting the Binding finished. She was so surprised when I gave it to her. I have it back.
Becky brought the quilt to the meeting on Monday and I was able to see it in person. Quite the treasure. Thanks for letting me share your story.
