It's my 'funeral quilt' since I prepared the 'white' pieces during the last few weeks of my son's life and then during his funeral his friends and family wrote on them. Each piece was pressed to freezer paper with lines drawn on them that indicated which way to write, and lines to help the writers. Otherwise I would have had most of them in one orientation, this way I got a mix.
It's been 10 years; 11 next month, and I can handle working on it now. It has a chain of red through it because Brian had/has red hair. I've cut pieces for it occasionally through the years as I cut apart a plaid shirt or find something that I think he'd like.
