    How sweet! I had been asked to make one for a teen who had a tragic death, so hard, I know... Hard to touch the clothes of someone who should be there!

    But I know the Mom of this teen tells me how she and her remaining child wrap themselves up in the quilt. This mom just lost her husband also... so hard!

    As a grandmother of 18 month old twins, I can't imagine the loss this family is feeling. It's such a sweet quilt and I'm sure it will be treasured always. It brings tears to my eyes just looking at the individual blocks.
