I'm overwhelmed. Those are all gorgeous and I would love to have or make just one that beautiful. Just thinking about making 5 lovely quilts in a month makes me lightheaded. You are a dear friend. Sorry to hear about the loss.

Wow they are truly beautiful. I love the fact that they are all
different. Your story brought a tear to my eye as I recently
lost my dad and have made a memory quilt for my mum
for Christmas, so she can still give him a cuddle.
