A Glimpse at Christmas Present

I promised to show a picture of "Apple of My Eye", a quilt my mother made me for this Christmas. It is made from Benartex's Cider Mill Road Apples materials, which I had to look up to find out what it was. The colors are SO totally me - nice greens and burgundys. I have most of my favorite mini's hanging either in my daughter's room or in the staircase/hallway. I didn't want this to get lost there though. My mother is so self-conscious about her triangles and her sewing in general. It is totally ridiculous. She has sewn forever, and made many quilts and tons of clothes for me when I was little. It's so great to have something I can keep forever that she actually made.
It may still get moved to my bedroom (also in these colors), but for the time being it is in my bathroom. Pictures can be very misleading. The green of the wall actually looks great with the quilt. I hung it diagonally too, as I thought that it exemplified the cathedral ceiling. Yes, the ONLY room in my house that has a cathedral ceiling is my bathroom. Where's the logic in that???

What a beautiful quilt! I know that you are so proud of the quilt your Mother made. I think it looks nice on the green wall.

Congrats on your new quilt!
