    Fabulous! Quilts are my thing. This pattern is "Nose-Gaye", from the 40's. Very nice!!

    A nosegay, posey (or posie, posy), flower bouquet or tussie-mussie is a small bunch of flowers, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice to mask the unpleasant smells of the time[citation needed] - literally, to keep the nose gay (to keep the nose happy). In their current form, they rose to popularity during the reign of Queen Victoria, from 1837 onwards, at which time the tussie-mussie became a popular fashion accessory.

    OMG! That's such a beautiful quilt. The fact that it has so much family history is so cool! My Mom was a quilter and I have some of the ones she did. I collect and restore what I can. What a nice way to honor your Mom to finish her quilt. Sweet!

    These stories are what I like to read.
    Lovely gesture to finish it for your mom.
    I love the pattern. Along with a couple others, it is one of my favorites.
