Machell’s STAINED GLASS quilt

Hello Friends, I am so glad you are visiting!  I am happy to share with you Machell’s very cheerful version of my Stained Glass quilt.  Machell shared the story behind this quilt: “I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your pattern Stained Glass from the Simple Quilts & sewing magazine. When I first saw it I knew it was the perfect pattern for my daughter’s youth group leader who was moving to another city. I wanted to make her something that will bring her comfort when she was missing her friends and students. I also wanted to give her something special in appreciation for all she has done for my daughter. I’ve attached a picture of the quilt, my daughter, and her youth leader… I added a few more rows to make it bigger.”

Doesn’t it just make your heart sing when you hear about stories like Machell’s?  I think Machell’s story is all about blessings!  Machell’s family is blessed by her daughter’s youth group leader’s investing in Machell’s daughter’s life.  In turn, Machell blesses the youth group leader with a quilt made with love.  The youth group leader’s heart is blessed by the quilt, as I am sure Machell’s heart is blessed as well while she was making the quilt!  I love to hear a story where a quilt is appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by, and many thanks to Machell for sharing the quilt she made.  I do hope you have a lovely and blessed day.
