Butterflies and Rainbows ~ Faith Do.Good Stitches September Quilt

The members of the Faith circle of the do.Good Stitches bee sent me a rainbow of butterfly blocks to make this (and another) quilt. The quilting over the butterflies is swirls, to symbolize wind currents after the butterflies take flight. The quilting in the white is just echo quilting. :)

This quilt will go to Restore Innocence and be given to a young lady rescued from human trafficking in the United States. The butterflies represent being made into a new creation, and the rainbow represents God's covenant with his people that He will not abandon us. It is bound in a black satin ribbon, which is Restore Innocence's "symbol", if you will, and the ribbon represents youth (little girls wearing ribbons...but these girls have been robbed of their youth) and the blackness represents what a dark, dark world human trafficking really is.

 

Every element of this quilt has been deliberate, and I know our prayers are traveling with it. Hopefully it will help one young lady to know, deep down, that someone cares, and that, ultimately, God cares.
