I started this project months ago, with the goal of finishing it time for Mother's Day ... Mission Accomplished!
After my dad died in 2006, I packed up a bunch of his jeans and twill pants and hauled them 1,000 miles to my house. I completed quilts for my brothers pretty quickly, but the quilts I had planned for my mom and I have taken a little longer.
Of course I've since missplaced my quilt book so I hope to update soon with the pattern and designer name.
The patriotic colors are fitting for his service in the military, and I thought the X's and O's made for an obvious name: "Hugs and Kisses." Made in memory of my dad; given to my mom on Mother's Day.
