I made this quilt for the family of a friend who is about to deploy. He has three young kids and I thought they could use something to snuggle while their dad is gone. When I gave it to him I thought he was going to cry... he couldn't believe someone thought of his kids and he was thankful for the time I put into the gift. I was so shocked by his heartfelt appreciation and raw emotion. I am happy to know it will be well loved.
