Quilter's Heaven????

Do you think there will be a special place for quilters in heaven????  When I was quilting this double wedding ring, this was what I was wondering.  You know, a special corner surrounded by fabric??  Streets of gold don't entice me nearly as much as streets of fabric do.  I mean, I'm just saying, it sure would be nice if there is a special corner for we quilters. 
The reason this was on my mind is that my niece, Paula, bought some double wedding ring melons at an antique store.  They were huge melons.  I must say, I couldn't figure out why she was drawn to these.  The white in the center was yellowed and some of  the fabrics were fraying.  But she saw the potential.  She took the melons apart, discarded the yellowed white fabric, cut the pieces down and made this beautiful quilt.

There has got to be some little lady (or could be a man, I guess) smiling because someone cared enough to use her melons and make this beautiful quilt.  Thank you, Paula.  Sending hugs and kisses your way!
