On Thanksgiving day we ate dinner with my Mom's extended family and then sat around my aunt's living room for hours just chatting and catching up. I sat under my Maple Leaf Rag quilt with my Grandma while I finished hand quilting the last stitches. It was a very special way to finish the quilt.
The pattern for this quilt is from the amazing Sarah Fielke's book Material Obsession 2. The pattern asks you to piece the scraps onto muslin, but I didn't want to have the bulk of the muslin in the quilt so I did mine a little differently which I posted a little about in an earlier post.

Two of my sisters were kind enough to hold the quilt up for me.
And we were able to get a photo of me with my Mom, Grandma, and daughter.
