I was inspired to create the Child's Memory poem when a special little girl, Kay-ci, died after her long battle with cancer. I was one of a group of crafters who made a cross-stitch quilt for her. This group called, stitches many quilts for sick children all year long. Each person cross stitches a square of a certain theme for a child, and then the organizer, Cathy, stitches them into a quilt to give to that child. Please visit this great site and you can pick a child to stitch for there. Besides making a quilt square for Kay-ci, our group received emails on her progress. At times it looked like she would pull through, but sadly she eventually died. She was a beautiful child with a warm, loving, and courageous heart - she often helped out other children at her hospital even when she was so sick herself. It is important that the precious children who go to Heaven before us are not forgotten. Do you know someone who has lost a child, whom you could honor by making this sampler?Below are pictures of the samplers. I've included an alphabet with the graph for you to customize your child's name and dates. If you have any questions or suggestions please email me.
I've had requests for a memory sampler that would be suitable for a stillborn or miscarried baby so I've also created the Baby's Memory Sampler below.

UPDATE: has now decided to stitch the Child's Memory Sampler on each of their memorial quilts. Below are some photos of the sampler on one of their quilts for a beautiful girl, Genny, who has gone on to Heaven. (The sampler was stitched by Vicki, who was kind enough to share these photos)
