    I made this quilt when I was a bit sad, lost both parents in 2 years. Trying to get my game back on. My hubby was gone and I was alone, my children mostly married. So as I was walking out of a quilt shop, and saw this quilt. I asked, do you have this kit, she said yes, I said I'll take one.
    Made this quilt in one day. It spoke to me, someday I will be free and the wind blowing in my hair. I'm a red-head too.

    Sorry for your loss. It's always hard to loose a parent, but to loose them both so close together it's tough.

    I'm praying for you that one day your heart will leap for joy again and the wind in your hair might be a gentle reminder of your parents loving touch.

    God bless you and Angels embrace you,

    Sorry for the loss of your parents and your husband. You did a wonderful job on the quilt though.

    Do you remember where you bought the pattern? I would love to buy it.

    I can feel your pain. I lost both my parents and my only sibling ( a brother ) in three years. I'm so glad that you found something to possibly lessen the pain a little. Hang in there. Huggs and God's blessings on you.patti

    I can feel your pain. As I lost my husband 4 months to the day after my mother died. My dad had been gone 42 years. But I still miss him, too. So much I would like to know about our family now that I wasn't interested in when in my 20s.

    That is a good approach to fighting depression. I like the quilt and I like the attitude of strength.

    You did a great job on this quilt. How wonderful you saw it when you were at a low point in your life. Hope things are looking up for you now. Someone told me once to forget yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow. I am not being shallow about your losses, I have had major ones also, but we must move on. Someone else I loved who died said to me all the time "Suit up and show up" so I keep getting up and getting dressed and doing what needs to be done today. And I try every day to do something good for me.

    Beautiful quilt! Choose to be free like that pony- speak it out loud. The Bible
    tells us life and death are in the tongue....so speak words of life about you!

    So much sadness. I'm glad you found some joy in this fabulous quilt. That's some terrific piecing. Do you know if just the pattern is available?
