After presenting the bride-to-be with lots of options, and thinking she would probably want something modern, my mom was surprised when she requested a log cabin quilt in very classic colors. Nothing wrong with choosing a classic!
My mom pieced all the log cabin blocks. I helped with the borders, back and binding.
It’s been a mother-daughter-themed weekend around here. After camping with the whole family Thursday night, my two girls and I came home Friday afternoon to take showers and go the the Justin Hackworth 30 Strangers exhibit – all photographs of mother daughter combinations at which 5 mothers (list here) read short essays that were both poignant and hilarious about motherhood. (If I find links to the essays themselves, I will share.)
Their words were just what I needed to hear – to remind me that I’m not alone in this crazy adventure called motherhood and that even though sometimes it is one crazy, demanding, exhausting ride, it is one worth taking. Then my girls and I followed that event with frozen yogurt, an introduction to the movie Hello Dolly, and Saturday morning breakfast at IHOP (the boys were still camping).
Then lunch Saturday with my own mom and all three of my sisters (this is a rare treat!) Hooray for moms and daughters. And log cabin quilts for another mom and daughter. (I had to tie it together somehow.)
