    Link is of the post about how my grandsons were born too early and passed away. I had made a quilt for the baby, we did not know it was twins yet. Ofcourse after she lost the boys I could not send the baby quilt so I decided to make my daughter in law a quilt. It was very therapeutic for me to be able to work on this. They live out of the area so I will be sending it. DH and one of my sons made a plaque also remembring the twins and we'll be sending that along with it. I hope this will bring them some comfort.

    Yes, quilts are comforting. So sorry to hear about this loss. The heart on the back for a label is great! I am sure that it will mean a lot to both your DIL and DS.

    Anna,
    Your daughter in law will cherish this. I lost a baby at 21 weeks and think about him every day. I'm certain that this quilt will bring her comfort.
