Alison made it, I believe, for an anniversary, and it hung in their home for years. She used lots of fun fabrics in various blues and yellows - a color scheme to which my mother was very partial. She took old photos and copied them onto fabric, and created a wonky frame around each and then tied the quilt.
This picture ran on the front page of the local paper where my mom worked. She looked so cute, but was wearing her sister's coat, without permission! Busted!
We threw a big party for my mom for her 90th birthday, which she thoroughly enjoyed. I am so glad we did so, because by the next birthday, she was gone. She is sorely missed, but I am thankful for the long lifetime of memories.
