Several months ago my sister asked me to make a quilt for her sister in law who had just lost her husband, the love of her life, after a wrenching battle with cancer.
The only problem for me was that she wanted me to make it in pastels. Pale pastels, with white sashing. I tried. And to be perfectly honest I wasn't feeling it.
I had the brilliant idea to add in some slightly darker fabrics and alternate them with the white blocks.
All soft and crinkly, fresh from the washer and dryer.
The backing is a very sweet pink flannel, and the binding is more of the white on white that is the outer border.
And you know what? I like it! I really believe she will feel the love, not only of me but of my sister and her husband (who is her brother), and more importantly of our God, the God of all comfort.
I am so thankful I can do this little thing called quilting to help and to bless others!
I hope you are staying safe and warm (or cool if you're in the Southern hemisphere!).
Hugs and kisses,
