It's not that I didn't want to make my mother a quilt, I would have loved to have cranked one out for her a long time ago- it was just hard to find the time! When I heard her complaining at our last rummage sale that she still didn't have anything handmade from me I decided it was time to go fabric shopping and make the woman a quilt! Then I procrastinated- but I HAD to finish it, so I stayed up until 3 a.m. on saturday night so I could finish it before our family lunch and Christmas together! I really like how it turned out and I love the polka dots. It was amazing to see Lucas' reaction when he saw that the squares he had watched me cut the night before had been turned into a blanket while he was sleeping!
