I showed her the back and told her that right now all looks dark and then I flipped it over to show that there will be light again. I want this lap quilt to wrap her in my love and symbolically give her hope for the future.
Psalms 30:5 ". . .weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
I bought this pattern and a fat quarter bundle ten years ago while visiting my sister near Denver. I was still teaching and it got placed on a shelf. Blue and yellow were popular back then. My sewing room was once my daughter's room and is still blue and yellow. I often see this pattern using fat quarters in quilt shops so I figured it must be a good and enduring one. I really enjoyed putting it together.
When I took the quilt outside for a photo before sending it off to show my love and concern, I noticed more blue and yellow.
