Tears Dropped on this Quilt

My mom hand pieced this three years ago in her last weeks of life.  My youngest sister helped and tells me that Mom really wanted it to be finished for me to quilt and have. I added five more blocks and the border and it measures 80″ x 80″.  It is one of my most cherished quilts.  I used a Denyse Schmidt backing and binding with flowers as my mom had one of the greenest thumbs around.
