Her name was Dot and her husband is Warren. He has Parkinson's and suffers from tremors and has had balance issues. Losing her has been a real blow to his world.
I made this quilt for him, since he does alot of sitting- he can find comfort in using it.
He met Dot at the fire department almost 45 yrs ago when he was a young fireman. He drove a truck, traveled cross country with a camper, loves sweets and western movies and old Rt 66. He was a farmer, a wood worker, and enjoyed a little gambling. Dot she was a singer and did sign language, she was very active in her church and with her grandkids.
I used all of these things in his quilt. That's why I called it the "Road of Life"
