    Butterflies of sunshine

    I made this quilt for my friend's Mom who has brain cancer. It has spiritual words along with the bright butterflies. I thought it would give her some warm feelings during her ordeal.

    No, I didn't embroider these words. I found the fabric and knew it was meant for her. I have another one I am posting that I did the embroidery.

    Lovely in those fabrics and colors. May the recipient be encouraged by the words and the friendship that comes with it.
