    How very sweet a story! I love that they stuck together to the end of the quit. They really must love to be with each other. Very pretty design and quilt ... lucky you to have it.

    It has been on my mind for quite some time to share this quilt and story. I am glad to share with you who realize the effort.

    Nancy - thank you for the wonderful meanings you put to the colours in the quilt. I'm going to ask them about that. They have moved across the country to live near his aging mother and the university where she could do a master's degree on duck cholera. We're now waiting for the call to tell us whether our surrogate grandchild is boy or girl.

    KLue - you're right about the connection between science and art, they're very closely connected. Although they had not made a quilt, she had done quite a bit of sewing.

    All the warm comments just make me appreciate over again how much these friends mean. Thanks.

    What a special quilt from equally special friends!!! I would write down this story so that it can be passed down to future generations along with your quilt. This is a story that should never be forgotten. :D :D :D

    You should print out the story and place it somewhere with a picture of the quilt. It is a great story and a beautiful quilt. Di

    Quilt stories are some of the best stories ever. This one is truly heartwarming and you have a beautiful keepsake because of it. Thanks for sharing. Wish I would spend more time recording mine and friends quilt stories. Some are priceless like yours/your friends.

    You're right. They told me the story of making it - the daily floor washing so they could use the largest surface in the house - in that way people do of apologizing in advance of error. She asked me not to look too closely because she had trouble quilting it, but I have looked very closely and just can't find fault. I learned about pulling the knots years later when I asked specifically about the quilting when I was shopping for a new sewing machine.

    Amma, I have written this story once now, but will take your advice and write it in a place that will be passed down. I hadn't actually thought of this quilt as an heirloom, simply as a treasure that makes me feel loved.
