    ""Layout HELP!"" Quilt finally done!!

    Yay! And I do love it. Now to get it quilted and come to terms with actually parting with it. lol Just to retell the story, this is for my sons 'friend'. He's in Afghanistan and they'll re-evaluate their relationship when he get's home. They were high school sweethearts first couple years of HS. I loved her then and even though they broke up, she and I remained close, discreetly of course, and I love her as though she were one of my own. Our whole family does. So when he asked for her phone number late last year, I was hesitant to give it to him.... Knowing she still loved him, but not sure where he stood (having just gotten divorced from a cheater).... However, I gave it to him and they reconnected. They were inseparable before he left for Afghanistan. Yay!! I would LOVE for them to end up together. They have ALWAYS been pulled together by their own connection, but the timing was never right. Please say some prayers for them ladies!! )

    ANYHOW, after all the layout problems I had, here's what I ended up with. I love it.

    Your quilt is really beautiful, and so is the story. Looks like your kitty is helping to hold it up for picture taking. Good luck and things always turn out for the best.

    Ahhh, the cat doesn't want to part with it either, I can see why. Suggestion for you, perhaps also make another quilt in the same pattern with man/boy colors and give it to your son for a bit of postive kinetic energy for their relationship. I think "kinetic" is the word I'm looking for anyway, i'm refering to the subliminal draw that objects are said to have.

    Thanks you guys! I'll be sure to update when there IS one! I LOVE the idea of making him a matching one, but... I'm already working on one he requested. GREAT idea though!!!!!

    And thank you for the appreciation for Michael. It's been a long hard road, but one more year to go and he's done!!
