    I Spy A Miracle, quilt

    I am making this quilt for a 3 yr old boy with severe head injuries. I hope as he begins his journey of recovery he will be able to use it to relearn some of the things he loved. I have named it I Spy A Miracle, because it's a miracle that he even lived at all.
    Many thanks and hugs to those on the board who shared fabrics with me to help make this happen!!!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

Thank you so much for sharing, it has touched this ministers heart for sure.

    What a great idea! QUilts can be of so much more benefit than just keeping someone warm. Textures are also great in quilts for people with problems, such as Alzheimer's.

    A very colorful and happy quilt. I like the way you used different sized pieces and love the different colored borders. So kind of you to do this for that little boy. My prayers are with him.
