This afternoon we checked the mail when we returned from the movies to find we had received our fifth wish/fabric square. A pleasant surprise! Today's square was from Mrs. Jeanne Bushong. Jeanne is the wife of Dr. Bob Bushong, the pastor that married us! Jeanne is/was an elementary school teacher and she had a wonderful unique idea for her square.
Jeanne took a piece of fabric from one of her favorite polo shirts she wore as a teacher for many years. She had planned to retire it to the rag heap, but realizing it had received too many hugs to count over the years, it would continue to receive hugs as part of our quilt.
Thank you very much Jeanne!
**** note, there is a 4th square. I just cant find the wish that was given with it. Will post when I can. It is beautiful, full of cherries
