Needless to say - I finished the quilting, added the binding and a special message label to the back. My customer picked it up, and was delighted with the quilt, gave me a hug, and was on her way.
And then last week - out of the blue - I receive a lovely email from Carla. She told me how much the quilt meant to her, and all of the cherished memories that came back to her upon seeing the quilt. She was thrilled beyond belief with the quilting, and the work put into finishing her cherished memory.
I could feel the love coming from her thru the email - something you don't see or feel much of these days of virtual everything. And I am so pleased to have been part of this very special project to bring her memories back to life. I know she will cherish this quilt for the rest of her life.
On this day of giving thanks - I wish to thank all of my customers for trusting me with their works of art.
May all of your quilts bring the same love and happiness to you and your loved ones as Carla felt with her quilt - for many years to come.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! (Oh, and save me some dessert!)
