Daddy's Dreams - First Ever "Works of Heart" Quilt Recipient, Danny H.

I have to admit, this quilt was very personal.  Danny is an Army buddy of my Dad's.  Danny was diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) just days after my Dad passed away a year ago from AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia).  Danny was then given an additional diagnosis a few weeks ago of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.  I knew from the moment that Daddy's Dreams became a reality that I wanted the very first quilt completed to go to Danny - and it did! 

Danny "wrapped in love."

Danny in what he termed as his "more natural pose." 

This quilt is made of sailboat fabric and included a very special attachment on the back - a piece of my Dad's favorite shirt because I know that he would have wanted to be with Danny through this experience.  Thanks to everyone who helped to make this possible - all of you wonderful volunteers, those who made donations, and the congregation of Pleasant Grove UMC for helping us bless this quilt!!! 

Danny, I hope your quilt warms your body and your soul and that the blessings it comes with bring you good health! Much love from the entire Daddy's Dreams Team!

Psalm 4:8  "I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
