My quilt, "Leaving Us" made in memory of my Dad, has finished touring. There were 51 quilts in the exhibit from 38 states and over 200,000 people viewed them. Some of the quilters donated their quilts to AAQI for Ami to sell. I did a lot of soul searching trying to figure out if I was willing to let my quilt go. It has a photo of my Dad on the back and it is so personal. For it to have travelled and touched so many people was a unique experience for me. If I knew for sure that it would end up on a wall in a public place, I may have considered donating it. So I have decided to keep it and think of my Dad whenever I see it. I can still spread the word as I travel talking about my quilts. This was a very tough decisions.
