Mom's Quilt 2

Here is another quilt my Mom made and I quilted up for her this weekend.  She has been staying with me for a few days after having surgery this week, so it was a good time to finish her quilt so she could take it home.

I had helped her cut out the pieces about a year ago, but she put the whole thing together herself, and she did a great job for not really being a "quilter".  I love her fabrics, brights on black are a favorite of mine.  And I love the backing fabric, it looks like beads of water!  Gee, had I known she had this in her stash, I would have scooped it for myself!

I used Hobbs Polydown batting, and a variegated bright thread.  Thanks to my friend Donna who inspired me to put "piano keys" around the border!
