A note to Mom

IMG_9807IMG_9801IMG_9803IMG_9800Dear Mom,
Thank you for sending this quilt to me. I remember when it was on my bed as a kid and I am so happy to be able to use it again after all these years. I love looking at the squares remembering a dress, a hat, or maybe just a pattern or color combination. It all comes together in such a wonderful way. Seeing all of these fabrics together makes me realize how much of an influence they have had on what I like today. Simple patterns and lots of color make me happy! Thank you for making this quilt for me long ago and for getting it back into my hands to enjoy for many more years.
Love, Karen
P.S. The portrait is of me as a four year old wearing a dress my mom made for me. The fabric she used is in the quilt block to the right of the portrait. The yellow calico with the red apples and black leaf sprigs.
