My Mother-in-Law, Leila, who passed away on October 31st, was a
quilter. She made us many lovely quilts that we treasure. Although I have
played around with three Christmas tablescapes now, I have decided to go with
this one because it uses two of my favorite quilts.
This red and white one is draped over the deacon's bench.
This charming quilt is pieced together in what Lee called her French style
quilt (no batting). Leila loved France and anything that had a French flair. It took her a
very long time to cut and piece together all of these little squares. She made three of
them. One for each of her two daughters and one for me.
Leila may have been a social worker by profession, but in her heart she was
an artist. I hope that this tablescape will bring back many happy memories of her
for her son David.
I love quilts too. So sweet, so humble, so comforting.
