And here is just a glimpse of the finished product.
Friends, it took my mom five years to complete this quilt. Five years! And do you want to know why? Because every single stitch in this quilt was done by hand. I know. I am in awe too. It is taking me 9 months to grow this baby and I feel tired and impatient doing it. Let alone 5 years of investment. But her commitment and attention to detail is one of the best things about my mom. Here are a few more gorgeous pictures of the signature quilt:
Another of my mom's handmade gifts? These amazing, embroidered pillow shams. I love that she did mine in green, they look so pretty against the hyacinth walls in our guest room.
