I named this quilt "Star of David" ... A different name would have been nonsensical knowing the story behind this quilt. I made this one for a dear friend of ours that was diagnosed with leukemia some years ago. He has been blessed to be part of a new drug trial and so far, he is doing really really well. He says he was born under The Star of David (it is believed to bring protection and good luck); and he doesn't miss any opportunity to remind us and, it is often the subject of laughter ... Couldn't have a better name!
I can't tell you how much he loves his quilt, he must have thanked me a hundred times and said: “You have no idea what this means to me, it's one of the best gifts I ever received”. He even sent me flowers ... I think I nailed this one!!
