Beth's Angel Quilt

Well, finally Beth's quilt has the binding on it. All that is left is to cover a couple of boo boo's with some yo yo's and put the label on. I have thought a lot about the label for this quilt. I made this quilt for a wonderful young woman who is being treated for Sarcoma and is currently having radiation therapy. She is like a daughter to me and I have tried very hard to make this quilt special. I put a lot of love into this quilt and got lucky with the colors. It has lots of lavendar in it and unbeknownst to me when I started it, it is the color for Sarcoma. So I lucked out there. Beth loves butterflies and I found a lovely butterfly flannel for the back, as I wanted it to be warm and comfy for her.

In trying to come up with something for the label, I tried to think of something that would be encouraging and comforting and for her to know how loved she is. I came up with the following.

"Protected by the Angels that have gone before
Loved by the Angels yet to be
Cherished by all are thee"

Poetic I am not, but it all kind of worked out. I am hoping to deliver this on Sunday with any kind of luck.

Have a great rest of the week.
