Maggie's Angel Quilt

 It was a wet cold miserable day ,so  what is a girl to do
Sew of course
I finally finished Maggie's Angel quilt
Hope to catch up with her next week to give it to her
My grand daughter saw it and admired it then asked if the random butterfly was to cover up a mistake
She knows me well but not this time
Maggies Mum was Lorraine's step DIL and good friend
Bec always says butterflies remind her of Aine and when she gives me a gift it usually has one involved, so I just had to put one on the quilt
Incidently It was cut from a shirt of Lorraine's
