Mom's retirement quilt [quilting]

Mom's Retirement quilt

So, yesterday....while talking about the progress I have been making on my parent's Bear Paw quilt, my mother asked about her retirement quilt that she gave to me to finish up a couple of months ago....

??????

I completely had let it slide right out of my mind!  She had handed it to me the weekend after Easter, and with all the school stuff flying around in my mind, I simply forgot about it!!! Honestly......CLEAR out of my mind!!!!!  In fact, I had Mom in a slight panic yesterday when I gave her a blank stare, saying I really didn't recall even taking it home from her house....

After 2 minutes of looking, however....I spied it....stashed downstairs ...... in the corner...in a bag.  

One of the Sunday School teachers pieced the quilt and did the embroidery...

all of the Sunday School kids and teachers signed in the white areas and added their thumb prints...

LOOK at these amazing mitered corners!!!!!!!!!

I loaded it up lickity-split after finishing "A Scrappy Picnic"; quilting completed yesterday evening;  binding just completed this morning.

It's not a technical finish of my own, but some more quilting completed :D
