Featured Quilter: Della

During the month of April 2014, I’m featuring the talented quilters who attended Camelia’s Quilting Retreat.  You will see firsthand the spectacular quilts and other projects completed.  It is amazing how much the ladies accomplish during the four-day quilting retreat!

It was Della’s first time to attend my retreat and she traveled from the Blue Ridge Highlands of Virginia.  She accomplished a lot of quilting in a short time. She worked on an amazing “labor of love” quilt and finally finished it!

Della tells the story behind her awesome “labor of love” quilt, “My best friend lost her foot in a lawnmower accident.  Emmaus remodeled her house to be more accessible for her.  I made the blocks and laid them at the door of any place her friends gathered.  As I was sewing the blocks together I kept thinking Love for Vickie never ends. Then it occurred to me that God’s love for all of us never ends.”
