Renda is Kelsey's roommate. She is in the same nursing class as Kelsey, so they are able to ride to class and study together. It is really important to have a study pal in nursing--so that works out great.
Renda asked Kelsey if I would make her a quilt if she purchased the fabric. I told Kelsey I probably had fabric I could use. Then I remembered the On Eagle's Wings quilt that I had started.
The story . . .
This quilt started out as a wedding present for a cousin. Then I wasn't sure if the bride and groom would appreciate the time and love that goes into it--so I decided not to give it away. About that time I looked over some of Kelsey's high school stuff and came across the ad I placed in her yearbook. The ad had the song lyrics from "On Eagles Wings" to remind her who to rely on.
I decided to add the song lyrics to the quilt. Then I let it lay around for awhile trying to decide what borders I wanted to add.
Enter Renda and her request for a quilt. When I asked what kind of quilt she wanted--Kelsey said she loved penguins. So my first response was to look for a penguin pattern. Then I decided that may be too seasonal. And I realized that the verse on this quilt would be a perfect reminder for Renda, just like Kelsey. So what to do . . .
Why, add penguins of course. lol I think I added 8 different penguin scenes.
So last night she finally received her quilt. I think she loved it.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
