So Sweet......

This is such a sweet story. Last Monday at a quilt group I belong to, at the end of the meeting there is always a time for show and tell. I look forward to see what everyone has been up too. We have such an eclectic group of talented ladies. A member named Sandy told as the story behind this quilt. 

(I hope I get this right Sandy)
While Sandy was visiting family she offered to make her young niece a quilt.
 Her niece went and drew a picture of the quilt she would like that included her in the bed with her cat.  

It included a short note; 
Hi aunt Sandy i just wanted to thank you for offering to make me a quilt.
Love Stella


But she also went a little further and painted a picture of the quilt.

I like the detail in the fabric strips. Polka dots, stars and stripes
So Sandy had a good idea of what her niece would like.
But then Sandy received an email with a picture of this quilt stated she like this one too

So Sandy got busy and finished Stella a very pretty representation of her drawing. And the quilting is fitting for a young lady.

And the label on the back was perfect.
Boy I wished I had an Aunt like that when I was young.
So special.
 Sandy is telling us the story here.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
