I picked this quilt for the festival as it was given to a special boy and for two special reasons. My daughter could never have children of her own. This very special young woman pregnant and single made my daughter a mom. During the pregnancy they became close and we learned of different situations in her life and also meant her 2 children that were at home. Home life was not very good. The one boy touched my heart. I wanted him to have something of his own, made just for him. I made the quilt from a pattern in a book that is upstairs and don't remember the name. I also made one for his little sister that I did not know as well.
This quilt was made with many feeling in my heart. I felt deep gratitude to his mother for allowing my daughter to have from birth a child of her own. I wanted the boy who recieved the quilt to feel loved and important.
