John and Kerry, a Match Made by God

Kerry is the daughter of our best friends of 39 years, Marylyn and Dennis. Kerry was born the year between our two boys. Shortly after Kerry started dating John, he had a motorcycle accident that required him nursing care. Marylyn and Dennis took him in, giving him the 24 hour care he needed. They knew that he was the one for Kerry. Needless to say they got married. When Dennis had major heart failure last year, it was John and Kerry who were there daily with Marylyn at the hospital and John who would transport Dennis, run errands for them, and make household repairs. John was placed by God into this family. So......
this quilt was made for them with love and thanks.


This design came from Kaffe Fassett's Country Gardens. The custom quilting was done by Diane of Mountain Quilters, Sky Forest, CA in the San Bernardino Mountains near Arrowhead. Her skill and sense of design is incredible.

It sounds like they are very deserving of a quilt made with love. It is really pretty and one of my favorite patterns (and one I've never made).
