Auntie Tablecloth on Moda Bakeshop!

Here I am tooting my own horn.
My newest Moda bakeshop project.

I started this project while I was faced with concern about my 2 aunts in Iowa.
2 of my dad's sisters are very ill.
My aunt Patty is only 59 and she had a stroke. She's recovering, but slowly.
In addition to that, my aunt Margie is also gravely ill. At 62, she suffers from Emphysema. 
It appeared that in less than 2 days...we could have been faced with 2 funerals.
That was tough on the entire family.
For me, living 9 hours away makes it even harder.
I turned to my piecing and creating to help me through my worries.
The results: Auntie Tablecloth
I hope it inspires you to focus your worries into something new and beautiful.

Lovely tablecloth. I do hope that your aunts are doing better. It is so hard to sit at a distance and wait for phone calls.
