Sometimes It All Comes Together

Friday evening I returned home to learn one of my aunts had fallen Friday morning and had a rod and three pins in her hip and was coming out of anesthesia.
I asked her daughter about a prayer quilt, and she suggested flowers. I had no ideas for a quilt but pulled some panels and flowered fabrics, including a sweet American Jane sweet-pea fabric I've been wanting to use for several years.












My friend Mary finished sewing the binding to the back and brought it to me.

Never, ever before have I made a quilt so quickly.  We held a little blessing for three quilts, including this one, at the end of our Sunday school class yesterday despite the fact that each quilt was not quite finished.

I did not get one of the labels for this quilt until later, so I was unable to fix it to the backing before quilting, so in one of the photos a line is visible from attaching that label.

We hope that Aunt JoAnn will sense all the prayers that it carries.  As well, we hope the post office delivers it quickly.

Happy quiltmaking and knitting......
