Life isn’t always quilts, happiness and storybook endings.
But we all hope for the best and we prepare.
We make quilts for those that we love and those that we hope to cuddle with for a bit or a lifetime.
I made this quilt top for Baby Nicqelle. We knew she was entering the world with challenges, but that doesn’t prepare anyone now does it?
Though she was a small warrior, she simply couldn’t survive without heart and lung support and today she passed after nearly three months of struggle and prayers.
I’ll stitch my love up into the quilt and pass it on to her family.
Tonight, I’ll hold my family a little closer.
