This quilt was made for Angela Cox. The sister of the Hebron Ward all signed blocks with their favorite scriptures on them. It was presented to her by the Relief Society President. It was such a spiritual experience working on this quilt. She knew that her son would not live much past his birth and we so wanted something that be with her during this very trying time. I am so grateful that I had an opportunity to work with LaJuan Updike and Kelly Dumas getting this quilt put together for her. They used it during Tony's funeral and Angela has stated that it has brought her great comfort.
Here is a picture of a string pieced pillow top. I am in the process of making 5 of these for the students that are seniors in my early morning seminary class. This one is for Cameron Hilker. The tops finish at 26" I think will make a great floor pillow for them as they go off to college
Here's a picture of David with his District in Frankfurt Germany. He is currently serving in Frankfurt and works with an outreach program there. He loves the people of Germany. David is the one in the back on the right. (Big smile on his face!) Having the opportunity to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a great gift these young people have. I am a convert to the church myself and am so grateful for those who took the time to bring me the news that there are still prophets on the earth, they do care about us and they guide and direct our lives.
