I finished my quilt!
I embroidered the (very long) title of the quilt on a patch sewn to the back:
It's a happy-looking quilt with an incredibly sad back story. My artist's statement is as follows:
"My father-in-law, Craig Goldsmith, is fading fast. At this point he likes to share stories from his youth. He is sharing the bits of himself that he can still find and it is an honor to hold those memories for him because they, too, will surely fade away."
