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.
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.
