Coincidence... ???

I made this quilt a while back http://ouvragesduneacadienne.blogspot.com/2010/05/i-did-it.html#comment-form with no idea as to whom I was making it for or why I choose to design this pattern. ( My very first to design). I had not completely finished it as I wanted to do some hand embroidery on on the leaves so it stayed in the hoop for much longer than I usual have my UFOs. Three years ago I enrolled in a three year Bible Course called "Grandir Dans La Foi" Translates to Growing in Faith. This is my last year and I graduate in May. The symbol/image used for this course is a tree. Coincidence?

The nun who teaches us is a sweetheart and is not a quilter but loves quilts so now I know who the recipient of this quilt will be, Sister Yvette.

I had named the quilt " Faith in Migration"; why? Because the fabric is the Holly Taylor line Migration , so now I have tagged it and I re-named this quilt "Grandir Dans La Foi....

I don't believe this was a coincidence.


  1. Very pretty! I don't believe in coincidences either. It was meant to be.

  2. I think it was meant, Joan - it's a God thing! What a gorgeous quilt!

  3. Beautiful on many different levels. Some things are just meant to be & are not always clear in the beginning. Please post a picture when sister received the quilt.

  4. Beautiful quilt Joan and so significant. Congratulations on your perserverance over the 3 years. It will be a very rewarding accomplishment. BLessings, Gaile
