The work and love we put in our quilts!
Those who don’t quilt could say these are just words. Even when we make our own quilts, I think we are not always aware of the “work and love”. We just make quilts and don’t count anything. But when someone sends a quilt top to you, asking to quilt it, it is impossible not to see the huge amount of work and the love the quilter stitched on it.
I don’t see quilts made by other quilters everyday. OK, I see a few once in a few years! So when I saw this top, the perfect piecing, the beautiful colors and fabrics (not to mention the long sweet message written in Romanian), I understood once again that quilting is about work and love.
This quilt has a special story. With Barb’s permission, I share it with you.
Barb lives in USA and her son is married with a Romanian girl, Carmen.
They are expecting now the first baby. Barb saw pictures of
my “Building Fun” quilt and immediately she knew that was the perfect
pattern for a baby quilt.
She asked me to quilt this top for her. Carmen
misses her family and country very much. In this way, the new baby would
then have a little bit of both countries!
I think Barb’s care for Carmen’s feelings is amazing!
huge responsibility! I am really nervous! I hope Barb will not be disappointed.
I have to quilt it now!
