Memories of Mom

My mother-in-law, Doris Gillespie, passed away on July 19th at the grand age of 90. She was a wonderful lady who loved life to the fullest and found the good in everyone. She loved my quilting and admired the work involved with the piecing and quilting process. She sits in front of her memory quilt that we made for her 87th birthday. It shows her life and adventures with family and friends. Everyone in the family contributed in the process from gathering pictures to piecing blocks. On the backing everyone made a square which included their handprints and special message to Mom. We will all miss her greatly.
