Default Ryleigh's quilt

March 26th two Des Moines Police officers were killed by a very intoxicated wrong way driver. The crash was horrific, the wrong way driver was going 102 mph, the police vehicle 79 mph. The crash was head on, their were no survivors, including the prisoner who was being transported.
This is the quilt that was my WIP when this tragedy occurred, it is now in the possession of the DMPD, soon to be delivered to the toddler daughter of Officer Susan Farrell.ryleighs-quilt-back.jpg
