Blessing Quilt

A dear friend was just diagnosed with cancer.
As I was quilting my latest Disappearing Four Patch,
I decided that this quilt would go to her.
As I was quilting, I prayed.
As I prayed, I quilted in words like
bless, joy, peace, faith, love and grace.
The words are hidden in the outer border,
but they are there.

Hopefully it will bring her comfort and peace.

May all who are going through trying times
feel God's love and peace.

Your friend will love this cheery quilt. And knowing there are special messages stitched into it makes it even more special.

Lovely finish! I like the idea of all those precious words wrapped around her in your quilt.
It looks even prettier in all your close ups: great quilting design with the hearts as well.

I quilted inspirational words for my daughter's quilt when she went off to college. I had even pierced my finger with the free motion quilting. She still says her quilt was made with love and showed off the spot of blood.

What a great gift for your friend while dealing with this disease. Making quilts for chemo patients is something I have done and I am doing in the future. I hope they bring God's comfort and peace.
