The last 21st quilt

This is a very sad and hard post for me to make. Some that know me might need a tissue....
Here goes.
This week I have been getting organised for a special 21st party.
Firstly. We are going to a 21st that is a GATSBY 1920's dress up.
My daughter and I have had a great time shopping and planning for it.
It is hard in a way that the special girls party that it is was the girl my son spent his last day and night with before his accident. She has had a hard time coping with life as we have. She is such a sweet girl and I wish we had more time to get to know her. We had not met her before but have learnt more about her in the last 2 years.
This is the last wonky star quilt I have made and just finished quilting today. 
It was quilted with hearts for their love/friendship and STARS for where JOHN is now.

I am sure that this quilt will be loved by someone who is so treasured.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICIA.
We love you.

  2. Jo, it a good that you sew your story and his memory into a quilt for her to treasure and remember. It is truly a lovely quilt. I like that each block is its own color scheme.
