This next quilt I finished is a gift for my dear mother-in-law. It's a jelly roll quilt which was really fun to make. I named it "Roses for Yaya". My mother-in-law lives in a assisted living home for seniors in Georgia. She was the most wonderful mother-in-law ever. I could not have hand-picked a better mother-in-law. She was always there when my kids were little to help out and she was so loving and giving and full of fun. She is over 90 now and is losing her memory.
I wanted to make her a quilt with cheery colors but a vintage feel... I think she will like the colors! I think she will like to cuddle up with it in her recliner in front of the TV. And maybe she'll remember me when she touches this quilt that was truly made with love?
When I get the rest of the UFO's covering up my cutting table in my sewing room finished, then I'm going to make some new stockings for our mantle and a cool Santa wall hanging for over it! I'm always so busy in November making gifts for my family for Christmas, that we have not Christmas quilts of our own!! I am determined to make some stuff to KEEP for us this month!!
Do you make gifts for your family and friends for Christmas? What are you making this year???
