In my early elementary school years, my mom made a quilt for me. I chose my favorite fabrics with pretty, pastel prints. She cut the pieces with a rotary cutter, pinned them together, and sewed them in place. Then, she joined the blocks together in neat rows and added borders. Finally, she quilted the entire piece by hand with her tiny, even stitches!
I used to tell her that I never wanted to grow up and move away with my quilt. That’s why there’s a tiny heart stitched on the quilt.
“If you ever miss me when you’re older, find the heart,” my mom said. “I’ll always be there for you.”
Mom, I wish that I could be with you on Mother’s Day. Thanks for a lifetime of love. You’ve always supported my dreams and believed in me. Thanks for giving me a happy and creative childhood! I love you.
Thanks for visiting!
