I finished the binding on Marie's quilt today, and took it over to her this afternoon. She was in very good spirits! Her daughter and granddaughter were also there and we had a good visit.
I have to tell you how TOUCHED and overwhelmed she was with the quilt, and the story behind it. I explained to her that the blocks were made by my online quilting group, blocks were sent to Becky, who pieced all the blocks into the top, then the top was sent to me for quilting and binding. I read her the lable. She was just so amazed that a bunch of women who have never met EACH OTHER (most of us) would make a quilt for someone they didn't even know. She doesn't know quilters very well, does she? :c)
She wanted me to thank each and everyone of you who sent blocks to Becky and to Becky who pieced the top. She said "How ever am I going to thank them!?" I told her that if she is feeling up to it, that her daughter can take a pic of her with the quilt with her digital camera, and send it to me so I can share it with you. I hope she has a good day :c)
I told you how Marie does beautiful water colors. She paints florals in very vibrant colors. The purple of Iris, the Golden Yellow of Sunflowers, the aqua blue of the ocean....and this quilt was SO full of the colors that Marie loves most, even she commented on it that "oh,it's MY COLORS!". Girls, you done good!
Happy and Grateful in SC,
