Foldi, please post a photo of your beautiful work of art, the "Lily of the Shadows" quilt, on our forum "Visual Arts" thread so we can continue to enjoy it!   :heart

Will the successful bidder/donor allow us to know who now will be the very fortunate owner of the "Lily Quilt"?

Thank you all so very much. :blush  I will treasure this quilt more than you may realize.  I just feel bad since it was obvious that there were others that wanted it as much.

As I told Foldi, I am so honored to have such a beautiful expression of love, talent and such a unique way of telling a story. When I first saw it....I had tears in my eyes. It will always have a good home.

My father's mother embarked on a mission of love to provide each of her granddaughters with a quilt.  I am the youngest of four girls. She completed the patches (just the top) which contained 4 butterflies in a circle, wingtip to wingtip facing each other. The first quilt for the first granddaughter. She passed before she was able to complete it and before I was born.  I am 57 and I now have my quilt. :eclove   Thank you Foldi from the bottom of my heart.   :heart

Love and Light,

Mary Kay

Cakie, the story of your grandmother's quilts and her passing before finishing them touches my heart.  I have a quilt made for me by my grandmother, and it means so much to me.
   
It is so fitting that Foldi's quilt has found a home with you.  I know you will treasure it.  :heart  :ecsmile
