Marco was in great spirits that day, playing with his legos, stuffies and his friends.
I was very eager to deliver this quilt as I know it had a lot of meaning to not only this family but to all of those that love them on a daily basis.
The basic idea of this quilt is that it is an "I Spy" quilt and contains a whole array of colourful themed fabrics. However it really is much more than that. There were a total of 421 squares sponsored by people near and far that have been following Marco's story. To say that there was a whole lot of love put into this quilt is an understatement!
Originally I wanted to create a card listing each and every person who sponsored this quilt, but with such an overwhelming response the card evolved into a small book. Each sponsor had their own page in the book listing their name and location. If they provided a message of Love and Hope, it was included. If no message was provided an "I Spy" clue was added to their name and location.
