๐ŸŽˆRise Up๐ŸŽˆ

Here's a fun banner quilt I made for my Mom, to welcome her back to her apartment after her recent hip replacement surgery:

The surgery was successful and Mom is on the rise!



Quilt Info
Maker: Nancy of Grace and Peace Quilting
Pattern/Book: Say It With Quilted Skinnies by Margie Ullery
Size:14" X 28"
Quilting: Free Motion Quilting
Thread: Glide--Creme
Batting: Quilter's Dream Batting--Poly
Interesting Facts: 1. Mom is 90 years old and she now reports being pain-free!
2. In Mom's senior apartment building, everyone decorates around their door. It really shows each individual's personality! Here's the left side of Mom's door, including a carved wood sign my Dad made (note the yo-yos made by Mom):
 
BTW, I used the following tutorial, called "Hang A Quilt Without Sleeves, Dowels or Nails", to hang it up.
    
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  6. Great wall hanging! That's a super gift for a person living in a senior center. I think most of them have space like that outside the doors for decorating. And I'm glad to hear that your Mom is pain free :)
