    Yes, it is a lovely quilt. I understand your friend's feelings about the pink ribbon. It 's a nice sentiment until it's yours. I made a lap quilt for my sister to bring to her chemo sessions. It was a blue and pink (she loved pink) D9P. She didn't get to use it for very long (less than 2 months). That bright quilt will make your quilting friend's day. She is in my prayers.

    Beautiful quilt and wonderful sentiment. I have never heard of Passage quilts either. I have some tops I need to do something with, maybe I will quilt them and find someplace that can use them in this way.

    Deb, your "passage quilt" is beautiful. I am so happy you got it delivered to your friend so she can enjoy it. With all the love sewn into this quilt, she will "pass" with a smile on her face...thanks to you and your wonderful quilting friends! This is such a thoughtful and comforting idea! Thanks for sharing!

    Reading your message touched me deeply. It is a wonderful thing to do for loved ones when they have passed away, even if you dont know them. It helps to comfort the love ones left behind and give the deceased much deserved respect. Thank you for your message.
