I finished Olivia's quilt square for the "Quilt for Life" - part of CWD (children with diabetes). Her quilt shows a little bit of everything - importantly, all of her favorite things!! There are over 600 quilts that will be displayed in Washington DC on August 4th and 5th. My family will be attending this event. My Aunt lives in Arlington,VA only about 10 minutes away so we are planning on making it a mini vacation and going to see some of the sites too. I sent it in the mail yesterday!
Just going there and watching Olivia find her quilt and see others who are going through the same things she is going through I’m sure will be emotional for me to watch/experience. I’m happy that I completed this quilt for her and that we are playing apart to raise awareness!! Connie (mother of Brooke) says it best when she said - “Putting a story behind the disease will hopefully empower Congress to work harder & quicker with various organizations to ensure that we find a cure for everyone dealing with diabetes”.
