When a country hotel was going to open near my Aunt Betty's house, the owners asked her to make quilts for some (maybe all?) of the rooms. She sent them to Mom to quilt, and they came out beautifully.
The quilts were based around nature scene panels, and were constructed with traditional piecing patterns in keeping with the country theme of the hotel. Mom stuck to her "Keep it Simple Stitching" to really let the piecing and panels stand out.
And because it is Betty's birthday, we decided to take her on a trip down memory lane. The picture below is of Betty (in the curlers and red handkerchief) and my Grandma getting ready to baste a quilt. Betty's husband Mert is in the background. (And Mom, is that Dad leaning on the car?) Apparently Betty was helping with the quilt while her hair set in preparation for a choir concert that evening. Speaking of choirs, Good Luck to her Grandsons Z and T on their concert fundraiser this evening! Happy Birthday, Betty!
