It's been very, very hot here this week. That combined with a lull in other activity has allowed me to return to my quilting projects. I decided to finish the quilt made with parts of an old hobnail bedspread of my mothers. When I was growing up we had several of these bedspreads and I came to love them. While trying to decide just how to work this into a quilt I came across some fabric with hydrangeas on it. We always had these showy flowers in our yard when I was young and they also remind me of my mother. The quilt features that fabric on the front and a lily of the valley fabric on the back - also one that we had in plenty around the yard. I filled it with a high loft batting and free form quilted around the hobnail design to highlight that. This is the first quilt that I'm keeping for myself. I still have a lot of the bedspread left and hope to find ways to repurpose it into some sort of gifts for the rest of my family. I've titled this "My Mother's Quilt".
