    What a lovely thing to do for someone to help them remember a loved one. The quilt looks fantastic. You probably don't know how much that friend appreciates what you have done. I know because a friend of mine is currently finishing a sweater that my mother started for me before she died. Your thoughtfulness will be much appreciated, I'm sure.

    Perfect! You did a awesome job of the ten stars - you are a star for doing this for your friend and in such a lovely way. It is a wonderful treasure for him and hopefully it is going to become an heirloom for his family.
