    I hand embroidered personal information on 16 squares of my sisters quilt. Stewy quilted it for me. It turned out beautifully. The pictures below reflect: teaching square as Judy was a teacher; Judy and her husband's wedding date; camping square for all the years we tent camped; and I went on my 1st cruise with Judy and her husband in 1988.

    My sister, Judy, has been battling breast cancer for 3 yrs, and has drastically declined recently. I am so glad to get the quilt finished in time enough for her to use it to keep her warm. Enjoy the pics, but they do not do the quilt justice. Sandy

    Judy was a teacher. Retired last year

    Wow, fabulous! She will absolutely love it. Stewy did a great job -- I love that kind of swirl.

    Sandy I'm so sorry about your sister. I had really hoped that she would have gotten better. You did a wonderful job on her quilt and stewy is a great quilter. When will you give her the quilt?

    The quilt is awesome. I know it will lift Judy's spirit. I have said a prayer for Judy. God Bless Judy, her family and you and your family.

    Thank you Ladies. Each time I look at this quilt it makes me want to hurry and get the rest of my UFOs finished. In time, I keep telling myself.
