I am the second of seven children in our family. My older sister and I decided to make a quilt for our youngest sibling. Our brother Ron, is a very kind and helpful person. He was divorced
many years ago and took responsibility for the majority of the raising of his three children. Now they are grown and have their own children. Ron still is there to help them any way he can. He works two jobs to support himself and to help with his grandchildren. He goes to our 89 yr old mother's apartment several times a week to check on her and bring her anything she may need. He is the one we can all count on if there is a need. He has house sat, animal fed, painted, worked on yard projects and taken our parents to the doctor. He deserves a special recognition for all he does. He is a devout Christian who loves the Texas Ranger baseball team. So here is what we made for him.

Ok, that's making me tear up! What a thoughtful thing to do. Your brother is going to absolutely love that. There are personal touches on it everywhere. Don't be surprised if he doesn't use it - he probably won't want to ruin it!

Seems as if your brother deserves this special quilt, just made for him! Both of you are blessed to have a sibling like you/him :).
