    That is such a beautiful quilt and you are so special to finish it and give it to Helen's family. I'm wondering if there is an update too.

    Hey! I resemble that star.

    I have also lost a friend to brain cancer, it was... a very bad year. I hope the last year has been one that has given you the time to reflect upon the life you lost, the value of your friendship with that person, and the joy you should have in every day you have to live on this earth.

    It would be nice to see an update when you get a chance.

    What a nice response to the loss of your friend. I am sure that if any of us passed away, that we would feel special that someone loved us so much that they wanted to respond with something as beautiful as that quilt you are making for her family.

    What a good friend you are. God bless you and give you peace and a warm feeling of love when you think about her now. ((BIG HUG))

    Well, with time still against me, Helen's husband has passed also. He was sharp as a tack up until the Lord took him, but his frail body didn't hold out. He hovering around 90 somewhere, and had the richest life. His children adored him. As with Helen, his funeral was attened my most all who lived in their smallish town.

    So now the quilt is doubly sweet. It has thoughts of both of them wrapped up and sewn in with every stitch. If I can ever scrounge the $moochie$ to get it quilted (it will most likely require custom work) it will definitely go to Helen's son and his family. (They are who we are the closest to and have been for many years)

    pieced, but not quilted.

    Wow! Your quilt is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing and I, too, am sad at the loss of your friends. Has to be terribly hard on their family as well as all their friends.
