Pink Quilt Completed!

This pink quilt was made to give to my Aunt Beth today.  She recently completed breast cancer surgery and radiation therapy.  She is a strong lady who has always been there for me.  I hid a few pink ribbon fabrics into the quilt for a suttle surprise.  I embellished the quilt with some hand work with pearl cotton, hand quilted it and then added a label to the back as my signature. 

Before mom passed away in July, she helped with the picking of fabrics and the idea so I added her name to the label.  Aunt Beth is her sister, so it means a great deal to have a quilt my mom helped with.

BeBe was added to the back because that is what her grandchildren call her. 

The label was made and then added to the back after hand quilting the entire quilt.  I tacked it to the back. 

Love the binding!

BeBe, my Aunt Beth

Her three children and husband's name was hand embroidered into the front. I used a verigated pink pearl cotton to add the details.  I really enjoyed making this quilt.  While mom was near the end in the hospital, I was hand quilting this one and so it will always mean more to me than anyone will ever know!  Aunt Beth said I can come and visit it anytime!  Luckily she lives less than 2 miles from me!
