Ariel Quilt

This quilt was put together pretty quickly for a very special baby girl.  I didn't have much notice (it's complicated) but I felt that she deserved something special.  I did all of the quilting and even the binding entirely on my new sewing machine, partly to try it out and partly to get it done faster.
I bought the Ariel panel and backing fabric, oh, about 7 years ago and I was saving it, in a way, for this specific purpose. I think God probably smiled at that, since He knew all along that His plans are not always our plans.
That being said, I just felt that I needed to embroider Jeremiah 29:11 onto this quilt. It is absolutely fitting to the situation. I used purple thread and the letter embroidery feature on my machine, which was tricky with so many layers.  I did a lot of seam ripping, but it was still faster than doing it by hand.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord
β€œplans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11
The next quilt I am going to finish will be a top that I pieced before my 5yo was born! I am really clearing out the old stuff, right? If you are a quilter, what is the oldest fabric that you have been saving for something special?
