    You did a beautiful job. As someone who has also lost a daughter, I know it will be very meaningful for them, and they will appreciate it immensely. They will be able to wrap themselves up in their memories of their daughter. Blessings to them and to you.

    I do know how hard this was as I made one for my niece who's 5 month old daughter died. Truly a labor of love. You did a wonderful job.

    What a beautiful way to remember a child, I hope it eases their pain - thanks to your hard work. I would probably have a hard time not crying every time I picked up a project like that.

    Oh my what an awful thing to be going through, it must have been terribly hard for you to make it, but it is beautiful and I'm sure the family will find comfort in the quilt.

    Very cute. I would be hesitant too, but I'm glad you saw the honor in doing this for them. Now that you're done, don't be surprised if they cry, for their little girl is wrapped up in that blanket of love. Great job!

    You did a beautiful job. Seeing the "I Love Mommy" and "I Love Daddy" bibs brought on the tears.

    Well, he is right I'm sure. Even though you can't imagine it being any more sweet, I has to be. I just loved looking each wonderful block over. How nice of you!

    Oh Wow! I really like it and I'm sure it will mean so much to them. It's much better than keeping the clothes in a drawer somewhere.That was very brave of you to take such a project on. You should feel honored they entrusted their baby"s clothes to you, that is an excellent idea to make such a quilt.

    This is a gift that will be treasured always.

    I would guess it would be received with tears, but cherished for years.
