Quilt for My Mom

We received some shocking news three weeks ago about my mother.  She has terminal brain cancer.  Seriously???  This stuff isn't supposed to happen to you, right?  It happens to others...people on TV, in the movies, somebody else's parents.  This is a hard reality to accept but that's what I am trying to do while trying to do my part to help my mom be the best she can be with what she is dealing with.  I welcome all your prayers for my family as we deal with this.

You may recall the quilt I made for my dad in August after his diagnosis with an aggressive form of bladder cancer <here>.  He is in the middle of his treatments and feeling pretty good.  But this latest news is taking its toll on him, too (as you can imagine.)

So, as quilters do, I made a quilt for my mom.  She loves red and black so those are the colors I chose. It is bound, labeled, washed and ready to take with me on my next trip to Kansas City.

The perfect design named "Whole Lotta Love".


  1. Awfully sorry to hear about your mom. You and your family are in my prayers.

  2. Your mom will love the quilt. Wrap her in warmth and love!
