Storm At Sea Quilt

AngelinaMaria, this picture is for you!  Thanks for liking my quilt enough to request a larger picture.
It was my first and so far only Storm at Sea quilt.  A little challenging but lots of fun to make. I spent more time rearranging it on my design wall than in making it!  There are so many possibilities.  This picture was made before it was quilted - Gina quilted it on a long arm quilting machine - did a beautiful job.  

One Memory Quilt for One Mom Remembering Her Special Angel

I recently finished making a memory quilt for a wonderful Mom whose beautiful little girl is no longer here with us.  I felt honored to be trusted with Kaylee's clothes and pictures to make the quilt.
It was emotional for me - just looking at that beautiful face - and knowing I cannot even imagine the pain of losing my child.  I did not have the privilege of knowing this beautiful little girl - but I feel like I know her now.  Her mom loves the quilt - I hope it brings here some comfort.  Just seeing her when I gave her the quilt was priceless.
