    Jenni, you're an amazing woman. What a gorgeous quilt!! I've never lost a child, and can only imagine the pain you've felt. I'm so grateful that you have God to comfort you and help you through such a tough time. You're in my prayers. I hope that you will have many happy occasions to celebrate with your quilting.

    This is truely a beautiful quilt. I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose a child but you are right to do something creative to keep your mind at peace and know that time will make it all......................I'm not sure what work to use. I lost my younger sister to ovarian cancer 7 years ago. She was diagnosed, had surgery and came to live with us so she could be closer to the hospital and stayed with us for 7 weeks. Then she had to be admitted into the hospital and passed away 2 weeks later. I thought I would never get over it but now 7 years later I can talk about it and rejoice in her life even though sometimes I still cry when I think of her. Time will make it better. At least he is no longer suffering.
