Another Finish For Mom

Mom has completed another quilt.  Yippie!!  She completed her Orca Bay Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter.  Mom was 77 years old when she started piecing the quilt and 78 years old when she finished it.    We finished the binding today.  Label is done and she has a quilt for the quilt show in October.
Below is mom with her quilt.  So proud of her piecing in this thing.  Look at all of those quarter and half square triangle blocks in this quilt.  And to think she did all of this piecing prior to getting her cataract surgery done.  Great job mom!

I love that we have this quilting time together.  Priceless!

Happy Quilting,

This is fabulous at any age. What an accomplishment for someone who is needing cataract surgery. Unbelievable! Be very proud.
