    Lap Quilt For My Aunt

    Howdy y'all :c)

    I just finished this quilt top over the weekend. I have an aunt who has had 3 heart attacks in the past year and a half, and I wanted to do something nice for her. She has no clue that I've been working on this for her! So what do y'all think? Will she like it? :c)

    She will love it and run her hands over it and think of you every time she uses it.

    Actually, no, I don't think she'll like it. Sorry. I KNOW she'll LOVE it! And who wouldn't? The sentiment behind it is super sweet & the actual quilt is beautiful! Great job!!!

    I gave the quilt to my aunt today. When I first got there, I told here I had something to show her. I took the quilt out of the bag it was in and held it up for her. She said, "Oh that's beautiful!" I then turned it around so she could see the back of it, and pointed out the label to her which said, "To Imogene with lots of love and affection. From Donna Faye, 8/18/2012". When she read that, she cried. The whole time I was there, she was looking at it and stroking it. I'm so glad I made it for her! :c)
