    My Mother passed on 3 weeks before my husband in 2009. When we were clearing her stuff the one item I was looking for... I couldn't find and I made my step-father swear when he found it, he would get it to me. This morning it came by FedEx.

    This is the second quilt I ever made. (forgive the label. It was my second also LOL) I thought I would share it with you all before I put it in my hope chest.

    I'm so happy to have it back :)

    Beautiful! I'm glad it was found and returned to you. Also, there is nothing wrong with your label. You remembered to label it, not everyone does.

    Beautiful. To pretty to store away. Would be nice if you could display it. I understand trying to save it though, the memories last a lifetime.

    I agree about not putting it in a chest. It was meant to show love. If you don't want it where it will get a lot of wear, put in on a bed you don't use often, or throw it on the back of a chair or couch that's not often used. You may find the furniture gets used more with such a lovely quilt at hand :lol:

    Krystel, That quilt is beautiful and the fact that it came today is especially appropriate. I hope you find a way to incorporate it into your home instead of storing it! What a treasure!
