Jenni, sorry to hear of the loss of our son. i am adiabetic too so know how it can be challenging at times. i just asked my art retreat group for donations of denim after being inspired from this group and I am a newbie to quilting. One of the gals said she has tons and my friend said she bets it may be her husbands who passed away recently so if that is the case I think I will be making her a rag memory quilt since dont know how to piece yet. A healing quilt will definitely be something for you to help bring you comfort through the tears.
