    One Mistake Leads to Another Update

    This may be the wrong forum for this, but I wanted to say that my dear husband, for whom I struggled to finish this penguin quilt, passed away at the end of April. I had the quilt in hospice house (he was there only a week). He didn't want to use it, afraid he would mess it up, so I hung it over the doors of the wardrobe so he could see it. I'm so glad I had finished it before we knew he was seriously ill. As soon as I finish the sleeve, it will hang in our (my) bedroom.

    BTW: This is the last picture I have of my DH.

    ditto to the above

    I am so glad that you were able to finish it 'in time' - You have a great layout of the quilt - it is very visually appealing.

    The quilt is lovely and your hubby looked so happy with it. I'm glad he could enjoy it during his brief stay at hospice.

    I'm sorry for your loss - I know it is difficult (I was a widow also). The memories, pictures and "things" like this quilt will be of great comfort to you.

    God Bless and I'll add a prayer for you tonight.

    You did a fantastic job on the quilt and from the smile on your husband's face you can tell he thought so too. I would not only hang the quilt in your bedroom but the picture also. So glad he got the pleasure of receiving this finished project before he departed. My prayers are lifted up for you at this time and I hope this picture and quilt bring you peace and rest at nite hanging in the room with you. Hugs to you.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your husband. I remember that post, cuz I thought your concept, and how you showed those penguins was spectacular. I might even have bookmarked it. You did a most wonderful job on that, and he looks so proud to show the world what you made for him.

    I remember seeing this quilt and your story. So very sorry for your loss. How fortunate you were able to finish it in time for him to see how much you truly love him! Hanging it in your bedroom is a wonderful way to remember his smiles and love. That is a great picture!

    Sorry to hear about your loss. He looks happy with the quilt, so you know he liked it. I'm sure you will cherish the quilt and think of your husband whenever you look at it.

    My sympathies on your loss. Your DH looks mighty proud of the lovely quilt you made just for him.

    I must have missed something. Was there a mistake that led to something?
