    Have finally finished my Deck the Halls Quilt

    I finally got my Deck the Halls quilt finished. My daughter Tara had traced all the patterns on the fabric for me, she passed away in June and I needed to get it completed for Christmas this year, just had to complete binding and now it's completed.

    So sorry for your great loss. I'm sure it was a difficult chore to finish this darling quilt, but so glad you were able to work through the pain and your grief and completed this quilt. What a beautiful memory quilt you now have and you know your loving daughter is watching and will always be a part of this quilt. God's Blessings to you and your family in your grief.

    The drawings are so detailed. Did you use crayons to color the scenes? I like the soft shades you achieved.
    Your quilt is lovely and will bring you comfort as you admire the beautiful scenes your daughter drew for you.

    Words are never enough when one loses a child...what a beautiful keepsake to remember her by. It looks like a lot of time and dedication were applied to your quilt.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Thanks so much for all the warm thoughts and comments on my quilt. Means a lot to me. My daughter is at peace now,
    but I miss her so much, she'll always be in my heart, I have so many more quilt still in buckets to do that's she's traced for me, I'm gonna try and work on them through the winter.
