Bloggers Quilt Festival

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.
