I don't mean dishonor to anyone, these were just my thoughts at the time the quilt was named. I hope it reminds you of your ancestors and their struggles, whatever and wherever, they were.
    OOOO HOW NICE AND THOUGHTFUL IT REALLY IS AN AWESOME QUILT.THANKS FOR SHARING

    Absolutely beautiful. I just received my family tree from my 81 year old Aunt (who still works full time for a plumbing company). It shows that I am related to the founder of Ryder Trucks and also John Adams and John Quincy Adams. This quilt portrays the sacrifices made by many in our past.

    Beautiful!!!! The story does make us remember what they went thru.
    We sometimes think "Woe is me", then think of them?!!!!
    If it hadn't been for their strong will, etc & with strong faith in God......
