    First quilt top! Goodness it's beautiful and it looks like a professional did it, you don't hVE anything to worry about it not being perfect. From where I sit it's absolutely gorgeous . I know your son is looking at it and saying, "Great job Mom!"

    LOOKING AT YOUR QUILT IS LIKE LOOKING AT YOUR HEART. It shows a beautiful soul. So sorry about the lost of your son. I have a son who is a very bad diabetic. He's suffering now with his toe, and is frightened that he's going to lose it. I can understand a small portion of your pain that you must have went through with your son's suffering. May God be with you always. Hugs,love and prayers to you and your family.

    Jenni, what a beautiful quilt! Yes, Joshua is definitely smiling!

    My condolences on the loss of your son. Those of us who have lost children can take strength in knowing our Heavenly Father knows our grief...His Son died, too.

    Beautiful quilt top. Thanks for sharing. It's amazing how many quilters have heartaches and quilting eases that pain and lets our spirits soar again. I'm sure Joshua had a grin from ear to ear!!

    What a beautiful quilt! Those are the colors I did my basement in. I am so sorry about the loss of your son. My oldest daughter is a juvenile diabetic also so I understand the stresses and strugles that go with the disease. I am so glad quilting has helped you deal with your loss. I truely believe he was right with you while you were making your quilt and is so proud of your acomplishment. What a nice tribute to him! I am not sure how you feel about this but my youngest daughters best friend passed away a little over a year ago, at the age of nineteen, and we are making a quilt out of some of her clothing for her mother so she has something that belonged to her daughter to wrap up in, that will last a long time. If the idea appeals to you it might be an idea for a second quilt.:)

    Congratulations on finishing your beautiful quilt!! This quilt, made in your son's memory, is a wonderful tribute to him & to the love you have for him. Love never dies. God was with you while you were going through the process of putting this quilt together & He was there with you when you finished it. Quilting is a form of therapy for many of us. I'm so glad you finished your quilt & I hope your next quilt will be to celebrate a happier time. So sorry for your loss. (((Hugs)))

    May you find some comfort with quilting..I am so sorry for your loss..I have never lost a child, but have lost a daughter in law ..I made her wedding dress and it still hangs in my closet...
    When I am having a bad day, I stay in my sewing room and create....Creativity is good for the soul....
    Keep on quilting...your quilt is beautiful...Are you going to quilt it or take it to a long arm quilter to have it machine done...I don't do anything larger than a throw size...It is just too big to handle...
    Look forward to trading some goodies....
