Remember this quilt? I knew the first thing I wanted to make was a little gift for the sweet giver of this quilt! Since she and her husband have an organic farm, I knew I wanted it to be something about gardening. Using my concordance, I looked at lots of verses - but settled on this:
I love how it turned out! I just cut a piece of the quilt to fit the frame, then free-hand stitched the words on. The glass would not fit once I put the quilt in - I don't mind it that way! Plus, I found the weathered looking frame on clearance!
By the way, don't you just love how well used quilts feel? They just have the homiest feeling!
This one has been delivered and now I'm envisioning one for our kitchen! And, I just have to share that when I delivered it, my friend was not there - but her husband agreed to deliver it to her for me. He read the verse and said, "She is like a well watered garden. And, such a blessing to me and others." Wasn't that sweet? It's true too!
