These two quilts are for my mother. The tops are made entirely from hundreds of Liberty of London Tana Lawn fabrics. I had been collecting the fabric for ages and was waiting for the perfect project to use them.
Two quilts for Mom was that perfect project. Tana lawn is a silky, smooth fabric. Thin, slippery and drapey. The prints are mostly tiny florals with a few surprises now and again. The backs of each quilt are a voile base cloth that is nearly indistinguishable from a tana lawn in it's smooth feel and drapiness. The quilts feel light and airy. And very, very luxurious.
The fabric makes these quilts special for sure. Which is appropriate because they are for a very special lady. My mom is exceptional. She is kind and smart. Funny and forgiving. Strong and determined. Devoted and loving. She showed me how to be a mother. How to love deeply. And how to be fiercely loyal.
Two quilts. One for her bed. And one for napping on top of her bed. So that she is surrounded by the luxurious, silky quilts. And hopefully feels my love for her like a hug.
