Astrid's Quilts


In November of 2018, my daughter had a baby who lived for 5 hours. (Her rib cage was too small for proper lung development).  While she was being born, I was watching the 4 boys (ages 4-9).  They chose the fabrics for a small quilt that would go in the casket, so she could have a blanket in heaven.  They ironed them onto the fabric themselves.  This is the full size one I made in her memory.  There is a butterfly for every member of the family.
