This is the Quilt that Love Built


This is the quilt that love built.
This is the quilt with strings so bright
Pieced by Becky long into the night
Sent 'cross states on an overnight flight
Quilted by Bonnie with hopes that it might
Wrap 'round Marie with a warmth just right
This is the quilt that love built.

This poem came to me while I was fixing my tea this morning! The quilt top
from Becky arrived yesterday. I'm loading it today....it is JUST BEAUTIFUL!
I love the brights in it, and it is SO Marie. She does beautiful watercolor
paintings (and oils too) and her color choices are so vivid.....and this
quilt is SO Marie! I can't thank you enough Becky!

I'll post a pic when it's done.

The poem is going on the label :c)

Beautiful quilt; beautiful poem; beautiful sentiment. I suspect this quilt comforts its creators as well as its recipient.

Lovely quilt - also, the poem, which is sending shivvers up my spine and is bringing tears to my eyes. May Marie find comfort in this wonderful gift, and may you and Becky also, have fond memories of Marie, and of the warm and loving thoughts that go along with the quilt.
