Transformation is the perfect name for my wonderful friend.  It seems like every season in her life brings a new and wondrous work of God and transforms her even more. It is wonderful to watch and share in her life and story.

This was the hardest quilt to come up with.  I had finished everyone's but hers and still could not figure out what to do.  Since I had done some Africa related quilts for her children I decided to just do a google search for African quilts, and came across a quilt in a museum in Africa made from animal skin fabrics. So this was my second try at printing out a picture and trying to recreate a quilt on my own.

Love the way it turned out.
And since Africa is near and dear to her heart, I was actually able to find an African print for the back of the quilt to keep it a little in line with her kids quilts.
My friend, and the other women in her family all have the most amazing smiles. I LOVE to see her coming because her smile just makes me happy.

I am thankful for the things I have been able to do with her. Whether its camping or just riding in a car with her, the more I get to know her the more I love her.

You are an incredible person my friend. And you and your family are such an incredible blessing in so many young lives.

I so miss you!
