I just realized I never showed you the pics of Kim's finished quilt. It now resides on her bed and she seems pretty happy with it. Here it is, free-motion quilted, in all its glory:
My son was doing the honors of holding it up for me. (I should have paid attention to the "stuff" in the background - ugh!)
Okasan is mother in Japanese (I hope I spelled it correctly!) She calls herself my Japanese mother. She will be 80 in July.
Have a blessed rest of the week, to those of you who have tarried with me this post!
