    This quilt has been in the "planning" stages since 2001. My first husband was dying of cancer and my daughter was trying to ease my mind for a few minutes. So she asked me to make her a quilt and I started asking her all the standard questions (colors, size, etc.). We had a great half hour of planning in our heads. Her dad died later that same evening. So this quilt means a lot to me as I know she will love and cherish it (cause if she doesn't, I'm gonna hurt her :roll: )

    Still have to piece the backing (yuck). Size is approximately 120" square.
