"Little Angel Ethan Edward" by Mary Ellen

This is my first and only finished quilt. It was made in 2008 after the death of my niece and nephew's 3 month old son Ethan in Oct. 2007 from SIDS. It was presented to them at the one year anniversary of his new life in heaven. The pattern that I used was "Lucky Stars" from Atkinson Designs.

How sad about little Ethan but I bet his parents treasure this quilt and it lets his parents hold him in a sense. What a terrible tragedy it puts into place the things that we consider "problems".

I forgot to say it is a beautiful quilt and I love the color combination. I hope you will continue to make many more quilts.

Mary Ellen your quilt is gorgeous.  How bitter sweet.  I feel sure little Ethan's parents cherish the quilt and all the memories it represents.

What a wonderful idea.  They can hang it to see all the time or pull out and wrap themselves in him when they want to.  The quilt is beautiful too.  Nice gift.
