A finish for Del Jeanne....

and such a pretty, girly quilt it is *VBS* Here is an explaination of what became of this quilt once it was finished..."It's been a week since I delivered the two orphan quilts to the girls whose mother died, but I guess I never sent you a picture of the pink and green one finished. So, here are a couple of pics of it. The younger girl (2nd grader) remembered her piano music for her lesson today--first time since her mother's death, and brought me thank you notes from herself, her sister and her dad. She drew a quilt on her thank you note! She told me last week they had written them the evening before (right after I gave them the quilts), but she had put them with her music, which she forgot. She told me she loved her quilt and had slept under it, and that she wanted to make a quilt sometime!"

Very touching. Really helps to hear every now and then how much the quilts are loved.

Exactly what I was going to say -- very touching. That's the heart of quilt making.

Oh, sad!! Yet happy that you (Del Jeanne) were able to give them something to hug and cuddle. This is a beautiful one.
