I love quilts. They are so cosy and comforting. On a cold winter day there is nothing better than to wrap up in a snuggly quilt with a hot cup of tea and a good book.
This pile of quilts on the chair is what I've been working on for the past while. I have a dear friend whose husband died of cancer and she commissioned me to make quilts from his shirts, one quilt for each of their three adult children and one for her.
Her husband Larry, was a great guy, a fine Christian man, full of life, a good sense of humor and always thinking of others first. As I worked on the quilts, I felt like he was watching over my shoulder, in a good way, cheering me on and enjoying the entire process.
The quilts for their sons were made with the more masculine looking fabrics.
I used some of the lighter colors for their daughter.
I used what was left over for the quilt for my sweet friend Linda. We as parents often give our children the best and take what is leftover for ourselves, so I thought that seemed very appropriate. I quilted their favorite bible verses from Isaiah 61 instead of quilting a traditional design. If you click on the photo it will enlarge it and you can see it better.
