Hi Countrygirl and a great big Welcome too. What an awesome quilt!It is definitely filled with memories and made with love. That saying on the bottom just puts it over the top. That is a beautiful thought to live by. And your son is living proof of that. God bless you and him.
I love the colors you chose. This really does look like picture frames. The stripes were perfect to set it off. If you are a beginning quilter, you must be a very fast learner. Great job on everything. As for the binding, just audition the fabric along the side to see if you like it. Either color would be very pretty.
Thank you so much for posting the pic. What a story and an inspiration to us all. Please go over to the sew-in section and tell us a little about yourself. Your son sounds delightful. All 3 of my kids were preemies too, one like yours only 3 lbs and in hosp 3 months. They are in their 40's now, all healthy and kids of their own. I truly believe that with God all things are possible!
Hugs and blessings and Happy Quilting to a new friend today.
