Stepmonster Quilt - Done

Story:
My stepmother Joanne is very ill.  She has esophageal cancer, among other health issues, and she's struggling.  Joanne and I have had, shall we say, a sporadic relationship.  Mostly I think it's a relationship of tolerance. 

 I wanted to make this quilt for Joanne to show her God's love in a practical way - even if from my little hands. I wanted to give her something that was inspired and lovely and just for her. 


                           



The back is a vintage sheet.

  1. Oh, this brought tears to my eyes! I have a step monster of my own, who has hurt not only me, but my husband and children as well. It is to tough to love these difficult people in our lives and takes so much prayer. Thanks for reminding me that when I find it hard to love others, God can provide more than enough.
