Memory Quilt

We finished the quilt square that I volunteered to make for the Preeclampsia Foundation's fund raising event in October. The memory quilt is going to be made and auctioned off at this year's Saving Grace Event. The queen size quilt will be made up of 42 - 12 inch squares. It is a special way to remember and honor the Moms and angels who have been lost to PE as well as those who are survivors of PE. Saving Grace is the Preeclampsia Foundation's national fund raising event to help fund research and education. And since I won't be able to travel to Boston this year for the event I had to make sure to do my part to help.

The square is made up of:

6 stars for each month she lived inside of me and she will always be the light of our lives
Ladybugs because that was one of her first nicknames
Her statistics
1 Monarch butterfly because everytime I see one I think of her
