Default "Name a star" Memorial quilt made for a cousin

this girl was 50 and went in as a day patient for lap band surgery to lose weight. she died after she came home to her moms house. this is the fourth one i have made. with her picture on the star and the cordinates on the label. Beware some of the places that do this are scams , but i use the one in GERMANY 018.jpg016.jpg

thats her mother holding the quilt. She died on her bed. She hasnt slept in it since. so sad. The star company will send a certificate with the location etc, so you can go to a planeterium and look at the star. you can choose the LOCATION AND BRIGHTNESS .CMARAS1234

How sad for the family! I had never heard of 'name a star' quilts but think it's a wonderful idea. Should be comforting to her Mother.

I hadn't heard of the "name a star" quilt either. What a beautiful tribute. So sorry for the family and friends.

That's so sad. This quilt will be treasured as a memory of the woman and of your kindness.
