    A finish that was meant to be

    Two years ago near the start of my quilting journey I decided to make a lap quilt for by best friend. Finished piecing it & thought I would FMQ it as soon as I learned how. I was way over confident in my abilities. Last week for some unknown reason I felt it was time to finish that quilt, so I quilted it using my walking foot. I wasn't pleased with my piecing, know I could do a lot better job now, but it was done. Didn't know whether to give it to my friend or not.

    She phoned Saturday morning. Her husband had died quite unexpectedly. She is a strong woman who will be ok, but I know she will be trying to look after her son & daughter, not thinking of herself. I think I was meant to finish that quilt last week & of course be taking it to her when I make the trip there this week.

    Years ago when my mother died she showed up at my door with a cuddly fleece throw for me to cuddle under when I needed to cry. Now I will do the same for her.

      Isn't life strange this way. She will be so glad to see you and will wrap herself up in that big hug of a quilt you are delivering.

          Your friend will appreciate the quilt you made. A quilt that is loved is better than a perfect one. Thanks for sharing your story.

              There is nothing more comforting than receiving a quilt from a friend. Good for you!

                    I always say that things happen for a reason. What a wonderful friend she has in you.
                    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
