A Prayer Quilt of Sorts

I wanted to make a "prayer quilt" for my son, so that it would be something a little "extra special" later.
I have no idea what "prayer quilt" means, 
I just thought I would pray while I worked on it. 
And that inspired me to hand quilt the back using different names for God as my design. 
So I simply wrote in the prettiest cursive that I could (not great) and then hand stitched over my words. 
I thought once I washed it, it would be hard to see but it's actually still pretty clear! 
I hope that one day he will use it. 
For now, he screams if I try to put any sort of covering on him.
 Silly boy. 
Don't worry, he's not cold. It's 106 today !
