The Wednesday following that post I received some news about the COO of our company. As I was processing that news, suddenly it "clicked". I knew EXACTLY who the quilt is for. I added 2 borders and quilted it on Friday and Saturday. I finished the binding today. As I was hand stitching the binding I was praying for my friend and his family. I attached a note relating the symbolism of the colors of the quilt and my hopes that he would not only be made warm by the quilt but also would recognize it as a prayer/healing quilt. I told him to wrap it around him and know he was surrounded by prayers, hope and love.
Here's how the quilt looks finished.
|This portion of the quilt was quilted on the long arm. I used a variegated thread from Superior Thread.|
|I quilted the outside borders on my domestic machine using a sage colored thread.|
