It was a bit of a challenge to put it together - sort of like putting a puzzle together without a picture for guidance and trying to make all the pieces fit. I tried to use all of the provided clothing to the best advantage I could. Happily, I was able to make it larger than at first anticipated so instead of having a tiny quilt at 40" x 52" it finished at 52" x 60" which is a much nicer size for a cuddle quilt. I quilted it in a free hand loopy-loop pattern with red thread.
It really was such an honour to work on this quilt and it will surely be a very treasured family heirloom.
Zackie's Mommy will be able to see and touch the pieces of treasured clothing and snuggle under the quilt with her family instead of having Zackie's clothing tucked away in a drawer.
It really is such a wonderful and thoughtful gift and I bet she is going to be so thrilled and overcome with emotion when she opens up her gift on Christmas morning!
