You can learn more about the Family Quilts Series, here. This is the first quilt my mom made by herself. She made it over the winter break of her freshman year of college. She said "I must have had nothing else to do". It was obviously loved and used as it is quite worn.
As a side note I was not allowed to take a quilt to college with me because mom did not want a quilt to be ruined. That was just fine with me. I was thrilled to have a real-life comforter, just like everyone else! That was the first, and only, comforter I have owned.
