Laying Out of
the Quilt
     
Final Work

What a work of art! I've never heard so many complaints or requests for extensions from such talented and creative people. But we can all agree it was worth it. What an expression of love granted to our children to come.

We looked at each square as it came in and adored the memories, the connections and the craftsmanship. It was proof that our union was supported. And on days when a wedding didn't seem like a good idea, a quilt square would arrive and Aran, Mom and me would get lost in the love of family, the blessings of our union and the proof that our love did intermingle well with our families and our friends. Your conscious and unconscious support will forever loom above us as we rest our heads and hearts beneath the quilt.
