just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the
precious quilts we received for our identical twin girls Lola and
Penelope. We absolutely love them and will cherish them forever.
Our girls were in the NICU at advocate christ hospital for 84 and
173 days.They have overcome many obstacles and have many more to go
but we continue to work every day with therapists and specialists.
The quilts are used on a daily basis during therapy and for
comfort. Thank you so much

To all the wonderful people at SEWonderful Quilts, our
family thanks you for the quilt our son was given at recent
Light the Night event.
Francine called us out from the crowd after noticing my Son's
survivor balloon and refused to let us go without finding a
quilt for Will to take home.
We love the quilt, but even more we love looking at it and being
reminded of all the supporters out there fighting along with
us. It's a beautiful thing you all do for families like ours
and I want you to know that it keeps our spirits high.
Thank you again. We hope the quilt lasts forever -- long after
even the memories we have of cancer having been a part of
Sincerely, The Plyters
