I have two very Special, Dear, Beautiful, Amazing grandmas that I adore so very, very much. They are so opposite of each other but they both have qualities that I admire to no end! I call one of them Mamaw and one of them Mom.
Mom (and I call her this I *think* because I always heard my dad call her that...LOL) made me my very own quilt. I cherish it so very much. She has 4 grandchildren, and I am her oldest. She planned to make one for each of us. Of course I was first because I was her first one! Yay for me!
She let me decide what kind of wanted, what fabrics I wanted to use and what I wanted her to do with it. I said that I wanted a crazy quilt and I wanted her to do embroidering all over it. Anywhere and everywhere! And I said, I want one random square all by itself on the back! I believe this is the very first quilt she has ever made, she also isn't one that has much experience with embroidering and she did it all by hand....and she did it all for me!
She started on Christmas day and ended on my birthday... there were a few years inbetween but she put a lot of heart and soul into it.
I just love it. Every time I look at this amazing piece of work, I find some new little surprise on it just for me to find.
