My 38 year old second cousin died nearly two weeks ago from cardiac arrest four days after she gave birth to her baby boy. My mom called and asked if I had any quilts made and I did not. She wants to give one to my cousin (the mother of my second cousin). I told her I would make one though. In order to have something ready by Christmas, I bought a pretty cheater quilt top off of Ebay and I'm hand quilting it.
Anyway, I have started working on the center section of the quilt and our cat, Cleo, is enjoying the process. I cut the quilt top into a lap size section to further aid in getting it finished by Christmas. I will have a progress picture when I have to take it out of the quilt frame to re-position for more quilting.
I figured I would hand quilt a couple of more quilts from the remainder of this fabric (and I bought some other cheater fabric). I will keep a few of these handy in case anyone else needs a remembrance quilt of a loved one.
Have a nice day!
