I posted back in July about my idea to make a quilt for my mom with a block to represent each year of her life. For Christmas, I'll be giving her the first 10 blocks (I hope) along with a small scrap book in which I want her to write about the event or the year that it represents. As I've been cutting out blocks for the USA quilt, I've also been cutting out (and machine piecing) blocks that I'll be able to work into her quilt.
Her maiden name is Maple.
(The red version of this is the Maine block.)
Road to California). With 2 little boys...in the 1950's. Apparently Larry never quit talking and Dan sprouted 2 teeth during the drive. Or so the story goes.
Alaska Block) Although mom does have a funny story about the bears in Yellowstone in the 1960's that scared the @&$* out of her aunt who was visiting.
Since I took the photos, I also managed to finished Cactus Blossom - the block I'm using to represent Arizona.
I have 6 more of the USA blocks cut out. Maybe I'll have some progress to share next week.
