    Your loss is beyond my comprehension. I think your memory quilt is wonderful. I have never seen one like it. Elizabeth Hartman's animals are so whimsical. Your grandson will treasure this quilt on many levels throughout his life. It is tangible to him and your love for him in making it will be a part of him forever.

    Like others, I can only imagine the heartache in losing a child. How great that his wife and son were able to part with some clothing items to be used in a tactile way to bring back fond memories and loving hugs from not only Dad, but grandma too. The happy pattern is an heirloom and will be treasured forever.

    TucsonQuilter, I am so sorry for your loss.

    I Love the pattern you chose. It's fun and he will have a lot of time to enjoy the pattern. I'm am glad he was able to help in picking out the "fabric" to use. And, it's a wonderful way to bring about joyful memories of his father. I'm sure the flannel one will be just as cute.

    This is precious. I love the whimsy combined with the memory for a young child. I'm sad for you and your family for the loss.

    Love those little penguins. I am sure this quilt will mean everything to your grandson.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    My condolences on your loss. I, too, have lost a child, so I can understand the pain for all his family. I have this pattern, but I haven't started it. I have been collecting flannels for the future. Your quilt turned out beautifully. I'm sure it will be a comfort to his wife and son.

    I think your memory penquins are a perfect, jolly, loving way to warm your DGS's heart in remembrance of his father.. I hope your beautiful quilt brings comfort to your entire family! Wonderful finish.
