"I am sure you hear very touching stories about the quilts you make, here  is mine:10 years ago my father passed away very unexpectedly on Dec. 10th, for some reason that year, he went Christmas shopping with my mom in November.  While they were shopping, my father found a little light blue sweatshirt with a rhinestone R on it.  He told my mother to buy it for Rachel because it reminded him so much of her.... sporty with a little bit of princess sparkle,  My mom bought it because my father never made a request like that.  That Christmas (my father had now passed) Rachel opened the present from my dad, she wore that sweatshirt until she out grew it... all these years, I have kept that sweatshirt in her closet, not having the heart to throw it away.  Now that princess sparkle is displayed beautifully on her quilt, for that I can't thank you enough.

If you look closely you can see the beautiful powder blue R in the middle of the tie dye swirl!
