My PRIZE Quilt!!!

Don't you just love Show and Tell!!  Amy  over at AmyLouWho would love for you to share something inspiring each week!  Take a hop over there and see what everyone is up to!

Cathy Wiggins knows her stuff when it comes to pictoral quilts!  About 4 years ago I had the pleasure of being a member of the same longarm group as she, and at that first meeting Cathy brought some of her beautiful work for Show and Tell!  She had done a quilt of a little girl wearing overalls and holding a big bullfrog! I actually teared up when I saw the quilt!  I knew I would have to allow her to do my grandchildren one day!

In November of last year my hubby allowed me to commission Cathy to make me a quilt for my birthday gift!  It has taken this long to get it finished but it was so well worth the wait.

I just have to share it with all of you!!!

Amazing photo quilt! How sweet!

We have friends whose family of nine had a terrible highway accident in 2000 outside Oklahoma City on a trip out west. They ended up staying in the Ronald McDonald house while one of their daughters was in the hospital, and each of their seven children received a quilt.

What a great cause!
