"They lived and laughed and loved and left." --James Joyce
My friend's 16-year-old son died last month in a tragic accident. He loved his family, friends, and basketball, and he was a kind, sweet kid. It is still hard to believe that he is gone, and my heart aches for my dear friend T.
What do you do when the unthinkable happens? What do you say?
I couldn't be there with her, so I sewed. And sewed. And sewed.

I cut the fabric 1-2 years ago with plans to make a plus quilt using the same Jeni Baker pattern I used for this one. I laid the squares out on top of the original plus quilt, which made the layout go quick and easy. For the backing I used the new 108" Free Fall quilt backing by Tula Pink. It is soft with a satin-like finish. I bought it on sale from my favorite local online shop, Del Ray Fabrics. (Spoiler: I bought it in gray, too, for the Husband of the Year/Doe quilt.) I love it, and it made this quilt come together very quickly.
