A debt, repaid

Mitzvah is done. This quilt contains my handiwork, but is not mine; the pattern, fabric choice, and intention were all Jennifer's mother's.

 

All I did was finish it, and in some ways ... set a little piece of the universe right. See domesticat.net/quilts/mitzvah for the story. Suggestion: have tissues.

    This is so beautiful. I read your story. Such a lovely way to say thank you to someone who has been there for you when you've needed it most. I'm sure in Jennifer's eyes there was never any debt that needed repaying, but it will surely make her so happy to see her mother's gift for her as it was intended to be.

    This is wonderful--the quilt and the story behind it.

    Some of the very best gifts enrich the giver as much as the recipient.
