Evan's Quilt



Last winter, I had in mind to sew a quilt in time to welcome our new baby, but sadly, our little Evan passed away when I had just barely begun working on it. A friend of mine had gone through her beautiful fabric stash and had selected a bag of  material that she thought I might like to use for it. I was about to return it to her when I changed my mind and decided to go ahead with the project. My "welcoming baby quilt" then became my "memory of baby quilt". A lot of tears and a lot of love have gone into this sewing (healing) project and though it cannot be used to comfort my little boy, it does now comfort me (somewhat).
