    This was made for my 2nd cousin's HS graduation. Her mom passed away in a car accident when she was 4 or 5. She was always saying, "It doesn't get any better than this!" In fact, that is what is inscribed on her memorial.

    What a nice thing for you to do.

    Does she remember her Mom saying that?
    No doubt has heard many of you over the years reminisce about it.

    Best wishes to her as she continues on towards more success in her life!

    Beautiful -- and it will bring on some tears, I suspect -- but in a good way.

    Even though I only lost my Mom in 1995, when I was 40+, I still love to recall Millieisms.

    First of all....what a great quilt. And such a wonderful idea to work in her moms catch phrase. Great idea. I'm sure she will love it.

    So sweet of you to bring a little bit of her mom into this special time in her life. The quilt is priceless-the time and thought you put into it shows your heart full of love.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I imagine that she does remember her mother saying that. She had it on her party invitations. She also took a couple of her senior pictures in front of the memorial with the words behind her.
