Claudia's Last Quilt

I am linking with Finished For Friday sponsored by litandlaundry .
Claudia from our Montrose quilt guild, gave me two quilt tops to longarm for her, one I finished for her before she lost her life so suddenly. That one was for her granddaughter, you can see it here.
The other is made up of nine hand embroidered nursery rhyme blocks that she had been working on for years. I don't know that it was for anyone in particular and Claudia told me "no rush Ros, just when you have time!".
After her sudden and sad death I decided that I needed to complete this, her last project and get it to her family.

I finished the quilting this week and plan to bind it and get it mailed to her family so they can enjoy it.

Ros...what a beautiful quilt! Claudia's family will feel so loved when they are wrapped in this quilt. I can envision their fingers stroking the embroidered images and feeling your friend's presence. You are a good friend to understand that they need this quilt. Thanks for sharing. :o)
