    Quilt for Sister-in-law

    While I am still here, I made this for my SIL soon after my brother passed away. Butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. (Sorry the photo quality is not the best)

    Beautiful quilt, beautifully done. What a wonderful gesture. Love the butterflies that are embroidered only - a little like 'ghost' butterflies ...

    Very sweet!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Beautiful quilt that is sure to lift her spirits! Butterflies are a symbol of transformation......in my family it is believed to be a transition to heaven and good things.

    Please accept my condolences for your loss. And my compliments on this gorgeous quilt. I'm sure your SIL is madly in love with it... I know I am. It's just stunning... & the thought behind it is so touching.
