I was going to hold these pictures until tomorrow, but I just couldn't wait to share them. I finished the quilt tonight and wanted to share with everyone who reads this blog because I'm pleased with the finished quilt. It measures 60 x 84 inches. This is the quilt for Matt Garcia's mom. Matt was the city councilman who was shot on Sept 2. I'm going to give it to a student of mine who will be going to his funeral on Tuesday and is a friend of the family. I met him once, when my daughter was recognized as a valedictorian last June. My heart breaks for his mother. Being separated from my own daughter is hard, but at least I can talk to her every day. I wanted this mother to know that I'm praying for her and I hope this quilt brings her some comfort.
