Late last year, a friend from church asked if I might consider finishing a quilt that her grandmother had started. Her grandmother was making this quilt for my friend's Mom, when she suddenly passed away. I told her I would take a look.
The quilt is all hand pieced and hand quilted. Well I knew that I would not be able to finish this quilt for her, because I mostly do machine piecing and quilting.
However, I asked one of my quilting buddies if she would be interested. She is already a fabulous hand quilter, and would do an excellent job. Diane took the quilt to finish, under the stipulation that she would not be able to work on it until after the first of the year.
Well my fellow quilters, Diane did an outstanding job on this beautiful quilt.
She took the remaining fabric and finished the edges, and also finished hand quilting the whole quilt.
The quilt was presented to my friend's Mom and she cried and cried. I happened to see her at church one day, and she told me that her Mom (the grandmother) knew that she loved blue and white.
Isn't it beautiful!
Thanks Diane, for taking the time to finish this quilt and bringing a little happiness to a very sweet lady.
