    Myself and a friend decided to work together (at our own homes) and make this quilt. Each block we finished we would bring to work and compare the differences as we were using different fabrics and encourage and give each other advise. Eventually all the blocks were put together and this is what i created. My youngest daughter has left this at home on her bed as she is now in the BIG city far away from home at Varsity. Every night i walk passed her bedroom and look at the quilt and think happy :D thoughts of her and how much i love her and miss her. :cry:

    I am extremely lucky and have 3 wonderful daughters. They all have quilts and each of them have left the one in their bedroom. I do it to all my girls. I AM SO BLESSED.

    Lucky daughters.

    I am working on giving each of my children at least one, hopefully 2, quilts to remember mommy.
