Cole's Quilt for Dakin

Cole's Quilts is an organization that makes quilts for SMA kids. MJ, who is the SMA Queen, recommended that we apply for one, and we got it this last week. Let me just say, I have never seen anything like this. His quilt is beyond words. The squares are hand-stitched--I can't imagine the love that went into this work of art. I mean look at this!

Superman! This one is from MJ and Brenda. (You may remember if you have been following The Daily Dakin for a while that MJ also runs a quilt organization called B4SMA)
And here's Dakin being stubborn about taking a good picture. To Linda and all the Cole's Quilts volunteers: thank you. Thank you so much. We will truly treasure this quilt always. It is beyond beautiful, and the love stitched in makes it absolutely priceless to us. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Wow, I love the Superman block.

I never applied for a blanket, but Cole's mom, Kristen, cross stitched a photograph of Taleah after she died that is absolutely breathtaking. It just came in the mail one day. It is still lovingly displayed in my living room.
