Today our family remembers two very special people.
My grandson, sweet little Amalya Nathaniel, was born and passed away on September 10, 2012. God used him in such amazing ways. We were blessed that he lived for one hour and twenty minutes, but he’ll be in our hearts forever. My quilt, Surrender, was made as a memorial to Amalya’s brief but very meaningful life.
Just a week before Amalya was born, my father passed away on September 4, 2012 at the age of 83. He was an amazing man, and I learned so much from him. My quilt, Always Establish Who’s At Fault, was made as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to principles he taught me as I was growing up, and I passed those principles on to my girls (along with a lot of other people!).
