I am working on a memory quilt for friends of mine who lost their son, Josh, in a car accident a little over a year ago. Right now, with their help, I am gathering up special items to include in the quilt. Some things I will be able to use directly, such as T-Shirts but other things I will scan and then print on to fabric. One of the items to be included in the quilt is this Celtic Cross that has special meaning for the family. I don't have a final design set in my mind for the quilt (as of yet) and that's OK. I will let the quilt speak to me and the design will evolve on its own.

As I mentioned in my original posting, Quilting: The Fabric Of My Life - July 2006, this quilt made a lasting impression on me.

Quilts are auctioned off monthly. You can donate a quilt and bid on a quilt for sale to help support this worthy cause. The latest auction of quilts is found on this link: http://www.alzquilts.org/loatallqu.html
Update 10/30/08: I recently learned that my quilt was purchased and that it earned $49.70 for AAQI. Not bad for a tiny quilt that's only 8.5" x 11" in size.
