    Your quilt is beautiful - What a dear project to remind you of your sister. My Mom loved pansies, and this poem was printed in the Senior Center Bulletin at Mother's Day. I put it at Mother's grave. Thought I'd share with you.

    Every Time I See My Pansies

    Every time I see my pansies
    Vivid in the golden sun,
    You are with me in my garden,
    And I am once again a child.

    Vivid in the golden sun,
    Their beauty brings me close to tears
    And I am once again a child
    Learning to assume your grace.

    Their beauty brings me close to tears
    As I join hands with you in love,
    Learning to assume your grace,
    Dancing to your inner music.

    As I join hands with you in love,
    You are with me in my garden,
    Dancing to your inner music
    Every time I see my pansies.

    I know your heart is hurting from your sister's departure from this world, but the beautiful quilt you made to remember her looks as if she is smiling at you in every pansy you created. What a marvelous way to heal your pain and stay connected with your sister!

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your sister. What a lovely and creative way to express your love for her. May your heart heal while your memories grow ever sweeter.
    The quilt you see, is a part of me.
    In your hand is the sum of my parts
    My mind, my body and a piece of my heart.
    Wrap in it, lay on it, cry, and dream.
    It's made to help you know what love means.

    So sorry for your loss. I have lost two brothers and I know how it leaves a hole in your heart. The pansy's are smiling at you and I am sure that she is also. Glad that this has helped with some healing. What a lovely way to keep her wrapped around you. God bless. BrendaK

    This is wonderful. I did the same thing..a bit of a memory quilt. After my mom died. The next baby in family, would have been her next great grandchild...had lots of daiseys in it...she loved daiseys. Good for you. Nice way to feel close.
