About 6 years ago my aunt gave me many precut 2"X6" rectangles of flannel fabric- not sure what I was going to do with them I finally decided to make a comforter for my mom. Not being talented enough to do difficult quilts I arranged them in a staggered row pattern. Once I had them sewn together my aunt added the batting & the backing and then hand tied it.
My mom was thrilled with her new comforter! It was sooo soft & warm!.
About 6 months later she fell & broke her hip. Her osteoporosis was so bad that her hip never comppletely healed and she was reluctant to walk due to the pain it caused.
Most days were spent on her couch under this comforter especially the last 8 months of her life.
After she died I brought the comforter home and now that the weather is cooler I have been using it on my bed- many times as I am going to bed I see a mental picture of her with this comforter- I hope it last a long time!
