I made this quilt for the young man you see holding it.  He was suffering from brain cancer and I was doing fundraising for his family.  I sold "sponsorship" to each of the blocks for $50.  For that amount, I embroidered a message and the name of the person who sponsored the block.  When he lost his battle with cancer, the quilt covered the table in church which held the urn with his ashes. To this day, that memory still touches my heart!
