If you’ve been around my blog for a while, this quilt will be a familiar one. 
It is probably one of my all-time favorites, and always will be.

    I have NOT been around long enough to have seen that quilt! And what a story! I did need the tissue, too! Very bittersweet. And very nice quilt, too!

    Love your Bricks quilt AMY! Isn't it neat when we step out of our usual fabric zone and are pleasantly surprised with the results! :)

    Beautiful quilt story Amy. I did the same thing when one of our friends died in childbirth with their fifth baby. I felt helpless and wanted to do something. I made quilts from each of her children out of her clothing. I cried buckets onto those quilts, but it was therapeutic to sew them.
