If you read my blog, you've probably read where I mention little Zahn. It's a long story which I'll just abbreviate here. Zahn is my granddaughter's baby - 2 1/2 years old now - who was being raised by his other grandmother (who adopted him). Unfortunately that grandmother has been fighting cancer and lost that battle last month. Her partner, who also adopted him, is now raising Zahn. This quilt is a comfort quilt for the partner, Bobbie. She's a lovely person and we care about her so much. She's doing a wonderful job raising Zahn and is very dear to us. She just loved the quilt - she cried and cried when I gave it to her, especially when she read the label. It reads:
When a loved one becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
I started this quilt in 2010 but didn't have anyone in mind for it then. After Pattie lost her battle with cancer, I added the hearts on the front, and the back art heart bouquet, thinking I wanted to give it as a comfort quilt for Bobbie.
