When I made my signature quilt recently, I accidentally left out a very important square my quilting South African friend made me. At the time, I didn't know what to do, but I was able to turn it into the softest, sweetest, personalized lovie for baby girl! I can't wait for her to get to use it!
When I opened Ms. Este's gift and found this quilt patch, she let me know it was for "something later." I had all the signed quilt patches and decided to put together the quilt. Then I asked her to be sure and sign a patch for me because she hadn't. That's when she let me know that I hadn't included the patch she had made for the quilt! I had no idea this was the "something later" that it was to be used for!
I quickly came up with a plan to sew it to a super soft blanket on the back of it. It's a great size - about 20" square. It makes the perfect size for a little baby girl to cuddle up with. Around the edges it says, "Faith, Hope, Love, Joy" embroidered by hand by Ms. Este herself. It is definitely a special treasure and I love that it ended up by itself, used in a special way.
Ms. Este told me to use it however and she would be happy as long as I loved it. Well, I do! She said it was made with lots and lots of love! I can definitely feel it!
