My dear Mother Ruth, passed away last Friday, July 20, 2012. Finally I am ready to at least re-post some of the memory quilts that I made for her. My last name, Ruthsdottir, was adopted to honor my Mom. She did feel special and very honored. That makes me feel very good.
News paper clipping about one of my Mom's swimming feats.
Here are some quilts and links that relate to my Mom.
She's a Star
This is the first 'real' quilt that I made. She loved it and it was always hung where ever she was staying. If you wish to know more of the story behind this quilt, click here
or here for details which tell a bit about Mom's story
Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
This is about Mom seeing a new granddaughter for the first time.
Angles have no wings
Mom said she felt alone in the nursing home so I made her this little angle hanging with bells. At the slightest breeze the bells softly ring. It seemed to comfort her.
These are some memories or a response to Mom, that I have fashioned in fabric.
Here is a link to her on-line obituary.
