I don't really even have the words to adequately describe this absolutely beautiful quilt that was lovingly made for me my by some of my friends.
Heather invited some of our friends to her home a couple of weeks before my surgery to have a quilting bee....these ladies and some of their daughters each embroidered or painted on the white squares of the quilt. My three daughters each made a square too! (They kept the surprise from me.)
Then Heather--sweet, hard-working, staying up all night to finish something, Heather--sewed this entire quilt together. Piece by piece.
It is a masterpiece.
When Heather brought it to me while I was still in the hospital, I just laid there and cried while she told me who made each square. I was medicated......I was so sleepy, but I was still aware enough to know what a great sacrifice of time each of the ladies had made for me.
This quilt has been my only cover that I have used both night and day from the moment Heather unfolded it and placed it on me in the hospital bed.
I will treasure this quilt for the rest of my life.
When I am fully recovered, and am no longer lying in the recliner for long stretches each day, I plan to keep this quilt lovingly folded at the foot of my bed. To serve as a reminder of the fantastic friends that I have. I am truly humbled by their love.
