    I am so sorry to hear your husband passed away. The quilt is beautiful and I'm sure it will hold fond memories of him as you use it. I really love the colors and the pattern -- how big are those log cabin blocks?

    Please accept my condolences on the passing of your husband. The quilt is lovely and I'm so glad that he got to see it.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It must feel like a hug from John when you wrap up in his quilt. What a lovely keepsake.

    I am so glad your husband was able to see what you made for him. I'm sorry for your loss...
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    The quilt is beautiful. I hope it comforts you to know remember that your husband saw it. God bless you.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
