As many of you may recall, my Mom has been ill since Jan of this year. She is now under hospice care. She's had 2 bouts of pneumonia and although she is still weak, she is slowing improving. I am her only caretaker so I haven't worked since Jan 3rd. Some days, she doesn't need me to do much other than regular care. (She sleeps a lot). On those days, I get to take a little time for myself in between her routine care. She loves the color pink. And I had promised her last year when I was working on my sister-in-laws quilt, I would make her a pink quilt. So, here it is. Her mind is not always clear, but I believe she undestood it's her quilt when I presented it to her. She smiled..... I could not find a design for a pieced cross block that I felt I could do, so I designed this one myself. The quilt fits a full size bed and the blocks are slighly less than 8 inches square. Not having ever tried to design a block before, they were supposed to be 8 inches square but came out slightly less. Thankfully, they still fit together ok. I used my IQ for most of the quilting with the exception of the rays behind the cross and the sid around everything. The cross border, sash and block designs are from One Song Needle Arts.
