Quilt With Us

This wallhanging is based on a larger one I found in a magazine.  I made this to hang in my 7 year old granddaughter's bedroom, at our house.  It is a tribute to her mom, our daughter-in-law, who just passed away much too young after her 7 year battle with metastatic breast cancer.  She truly knew how to live life in full bloom, and made making memories a priority.  We never heard her complain as she fought bravely until she had nothing left to fight with.  (Sorry, didn't plan to add the picture of the matching pillow.)

Thank you, ladies.  Your kind words really do mean a lot.  For as much as my DIL's passing was not unexpected, this is, just the same, knocking me for a bigger loop than I ever thought.

Lovely tribute to a life lived well.  What a precious gift to your granddaughter.

My sincere condolences as well Barb.  It seems like more & more young women are being diagnosed with breast cancer.  Your granddaughter is going to cherish this quilt made in honor of her mom.

Thank you, Mary.  Everyone who knew her, was inspired by her.

Thank you so much, Pam.  Now my heart is breaking for your friend, as well.  The story sounds all too familiar.

Barb- My heart breaks for your family...she sounds like she was a wonderful person. We are going through the same battle with dear friends. She is 33 with three babies. It just breaks your heart to watch them battle only to have something else happen. your wallhanging and pillow are beautiful. thoughts are with you and your family.....
