The year my husband was diagnosed with cancer was a stressful time for us and I spent many nights piecing quilts with one of my best friends (my sewing machine). I decided to make something lasting for each of my children since I had come to the realization that life might not last as long as we want it to. I did end up making a quilt for each of my children for Christmas that year but I especially loved this Buggy Barn pattern and all of the fun colors. This son was a member of the United States Luge Team at the time so it was appropriate. Since then he has married and is in the process of decorating his first living room. Guess what he and his wife are using for their inspiration? Yep, this quilt. He will also display his medals and other memorabilia from his days traveling the world. I'm so happy he loves it as much as I do. ***By the way, my husband is doing great now.
