A VERY Special Gift

Those of you who have read the blog for a while may remember when I posted about our completed 100 Good Wishes Quilt.  I was very fortunate that my Aunt Susie made this beautiful quilt for    Victoria Grace / Adisen Rylee. Good wishes quilt 1After we received our referral Susie called and said she had a new project in mind.  She had a pattern for a quilt that she wanted to do.  She asked that Ryan and I send her 20 t-shirts that mean something to us. 

I also asked my mom and my mother-in-law to contribute a t-shirt.  I new that this was going to be for Z so I thought it would be nice to have his grandparents in the quilt also.  I only sent 19 t-shirts because I hoped Sue would add a Cardinals t-shirt from her. 

For Z’s baptism Susie gave us the finished quilt:

Blurred quilt for blog I LOVE this picture!  Zac thinks that Daddy is playing ‘peek-a-boo’ with him.  You can see Zac covering his eyes.

The quilt is absolutely amazing.  Susie, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  The Good Wishes quilt I hope to give to a granddaughter one day.  I am sure Zac will treasure this quilt for years to come.  I know I will.  I can’t wait to curl up in the quilt with Zac and tell him about each and every t-shirt and why they are special.
