"Betty Alexander from South Bend made a beautiful quilt for @POTUS & enlisted my help getting it to the @WhiteHouse. I’m looking forward to delivering it to the President," Young tweeted Thursday alongside a photo of himself holding the quilt, which features a red, white and blue border around an American flag.

Alexander, 85, told the South Bend Tribune last month, "When I was thinking ‘who’s this quilt going to be for,’ the Holy Spirit just told me it should be for President Trump."

Alexander, at the time, said she was trying to figure out a way to get her quilt to the White House.

“I haven’t made a dime on any of the ones I’ve made. I just want to make sure he sees it,” she told the Tribune.

She also told the newspaper that she is a supporter of Trump.

“I love Donald Trump,” she said. “I believe his mom probably made quilts.”

Trump and the White House had not responded to Young's tweet as of Thursday afternoon.
