Maple Leaf Pattern Quilt

Happy May Day! (and for some: day after quarterlies taxes, payday, bill paying day, not my birthday, 25 more days of school… yikes. ) Spring has finally come to my town- the trees are in full blossom, tulips are up. We awoke this morning to the sound of a steady drumming rain which doesn’t happen all that often in the West- consequently, always a delightful sound.
Needless to say, Mother’s Day is right around a few corners and therefore time to think about your Mom(s). This quilt makes me think of the mothers in my life. The squares were pieced by my mother-in-law (quilter extraordinaire) then passed along to me. I finished the quilt, in whatever pattern the blocks chose for themselves and it hangs in my mom’s (lady extraordinaire) B&B.

It’s got me thinking about the greatest part of being a girl is all the other girls around you and the collective support we can give to each other in every way. So get out your favorite tools, (whatever they may be) and create something for or with your mothers and daughters. Make some memories and teach some skills that will last forever. I sure do appreciate all the ladies in my life.

P.S.- I think this is a maple leaf pattern, anyone out there know for real?
