Default Best thing about quilting, this reaction

I made an Exploding Heart quilt for my Aunt. She has been so supportive and encouraging of my quilting journey. She gushes and brags about my creations. She is a very nurturing, hardworking and loving woman who's birthday is the 4th of July. An Exploding Heart seemed such a fitting pattern. I bought nothing new for this quilt , only used fabric and batting that was already in my stash. Her reaction was the absolute best reaction I have ever gotten to one of my creations. She adores it and I am so glad I made it for her.

Pure joy! You're right that her expression is the best reason to gift quilts. The quilt is the perfect design for someone that you love and clearly loves you. Thank you for sharing your pictures.

The pure joy on her face. I am so happy for you and for her. What a wonderful supportive woman. I hope you always enjoy what you do. Your quilt is magical. So soft. Reminds me of the words cream and sugar.
