My sister made each of our family a quilt. Here we are displaying them. Our names all start with D. My brother died 12 years ago. and my dad died on Feb 11 this year. My smallest brother is currently in Iraq- his 2nd trip. We had lots of fun with the quilts.

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your brother and father

but your sister has made some fantastic quilts

I particularly like the autumnal colours in the quilt on the left

I meant "wonderful gift". I know a lot of love went into each one.

The quilts are so beautiful. Sorry for your loss. Still think of my father often - he has been gone 10 years. my brother has been gone 1 1/2 years. my husband 21 years. Yikes that is a long time.
