This is my first try (implying there will be more) for this November Priority Hope Challenge. My mother had Alzheimers, and this reminds me of her. She loved gardens and flowers, and remained a bright spot in my life even when her mind slowly slid off the edges. I can imagine her tracing the words and quilting design in this little quilt, and smiling.
I never noticed until I posted the photo how the red flowers move in and out of the O, almost like the O is hanging on to them, or the flowers to the O. Not planned, yet my mother’s name was Olive!
How good for those involved to make this initiative possible. Thank you. I’ve yet to make the label for this one (and first try to name it), but already am thinking of what to do that includes a bird so I can make another one!
