Default No name?

I don't know the name of this quilt brought to me by my friend Lillian. I quilted it with a pretty heart edge to edge. My friends and I bought her this kit when her brother died instead of flowers.

I name it Star Bouquet and it’s very pretty! What a wonderful lasting gift instead of flowers!

That is fantastic! It will last years longer than flowers and mean much more.

Beautiful quilt and such a nice thing to give instead of flowers. Very thoughtful idea and she can use her quilt a lot longer than flowers would have lasted.

What a great idea, Harriet. Those are flowers for a quilter... Everlasting.

It was a healing gift while she processed the pain of loss. Sure gave her quite a quilt to focus on while healing. You are truly a wonderful friend.

Wonderful gift for your friend. The quilt is beautiful and the sentiment very touching. I think it gives all of us a new avenue of expressing our support for grieving friends.

Great gift idea for the loss of someone dear...something to keep her busy and remember for years. Most of the time gifts are for celebrations so this is especially thoughtful. I'm going to try to remember this.
