Hi Cuties, I need some help for some sort of wording to go on the back of this lap quilt.

One of the ladies from Church came over yesterday and we pinned it all together and then later in the day I quilted inside each piece about a 1/4 of an inch and then made the bias binding and have just finished hand sewing it on!

What we would like is something like when you are wrapped in this quilt think of us etc. etc. etc.

Has anyone got some other suggestions? Love Chris

That's lovely Betsey. I need something simple, because I've got to put the name of our Parish and there are 2 churches in our Parish, so one church name has Holy Family and the church name and the other has a similar name and church name. It's going to be a big label! Love Chris

I saw this today. Goes something like ' In the Quilt of Life, Friends are the Stitches that Hold us altogether.' I sent you a pm.

I just googled "poems for quilts" and lots of sights (pinterest, for one) came up. Some are long! but some are just sayings suitable for a label. Let us know what you decide to use. I'm not very creative so I always need help. :0)

Hoping this quilt keeps you as warm as the hearts and hands that made it for you...
You can add their name, and the names of the creators as well as the year it was made.

I love this Meg. Lucille (Lu) is certainly going to be missed. It was my last bible study with her last night and of this Sunday is her last service with us. Love Chris
