We all know how it can be to mail that quilt to a non-quilter, not knowing how it will be accepted. What she posted to me on Facebook made me happy.
' Words cannot express how much this means to me Carol. You brought me to tears! The message of " You are loved" sewn on the back of this quilt was exactly what I needed to hear in this very moment. I am blown away at how God has used you to always be a bright star in my life. This quilt is gorgeous and something I will cherish for the rest of my life. Your time and dedication to making this for Melody Rose has touched me beyond words, and I thank God for the big sister and big brother program which led me to you! Over 15 years later and I still have kept contact with you and hopefully Melody Rose will get to meet you one day! I will show her this when she is older and explain to her how amazing love can be! Thank you so much for this beautiful and timeless gift!!! '
I just did grid quilting and in 2 of the borders I FMQ the baby's name and 'you are loved', plus some musical notes since she is a parttime singer. I used Golden Threads quilting papers.The fabrics are bold for a baby quilt, but the girls today seem to like that.
