My Mom's Autumn Quilt

 Gratitude Week ~ Day 2

Today I am very grateful for my parents.  I am grateful for the love they share and for the many wonderful things they have taught me.  It was my mother who started teaching me to quilt when I was eleven years old and my sweet father who supported us every step of the way.  

My mother embroidered these beautiful autumn blocks, but had a hard time sewing them together.  They are very stiff and bulky.  I finished assembling the blocks together for her.    

Then I quilted it with my walking foot on my small domestic sewing machine.  

Originally she wanted me to bind it with the same tan used in the blocks, but I thought it needed a darker frame.  She bought a beautiful darker brown fabric for the binding.  

I love how it looks with the darker frame.  

Here you can see how little quilting I actually did.  I am so grateful I can help my mother finish her quilts.  

What are you grateful for today?
