    What a precious gift you've given them..much better than a box of memories.

    This must have been soooo very hard to make this quilt. I know the family was so comforted to have this beautiful quilt with the memories incorporated so beautifully. You have given them such a gift of love.

    I made quilts for my grandchildren for christmas and used some of their Dad's pj's and shirts. The lost him the year before. I was a hard thing to do, but when they opened them, the took them and wrapped up in them. The kids are 4,7,9,13. A quilt like that enables someone to wrap their lost one around them...

    You did a great job...well done

    This was a very special job to create this keepsake and I'm sure the parents will cherish it forever. It seems to represent the sweetness of the baby so well. It's just lovely.

    That is totally beautiful. The memories this family will always have because of your kindness can never be bought by a $$$$. When My daughter lost her son. She bought a small square box and everything special went into the box. Every so often she will bring out her box of memories to hold close. Memory is all that is left when our little ones are taken so young. So few memories that you want and need to capture all of it and never let go. ((((hugs)))
