This weeks question is -
What is the most meaningful thing you've ever made?
This could be a pretty hard question to put into words. I've made lots of charity quilts for babies and familes that have lost their homes, possesions and loved ones.
But I think the most meaningful thing I ever made was a quilt for my friend Diana.
I had every intention of making a quilt for Diana and her husband when they celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. It was in September, but somehow the date got away from me. So I purposed to make it for them as a Christmas gift. I finished the quilt and presented it to them for Christmas. She and her hubby were both very delighted.
Diana had been diagnosed with cancer 5 years previous. The very next month Diana found out that her cancer had returned, and with a vengeance. She lost her battle on September 26, 2004.
I never took a picture of the quilt I made for her, but I share this last photo of Diana and myself the Easter before she passed away. Diana was head and shoulders above me both physically and in character. She had a truly warm and giving heart. I still miss her.
Thanks for letting me share.
