The Chase

Tomorrow morning I will participate in "The Chase."  It is a 5k in memory of a sweet little boy, Chase Austin Ruffner, who passed away from SIDS.  Money raised will go to an organization called First Candle.  A bit about them:


First Candle is a leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to safe pregnancies and the survival of babies through the first years of life. Current priorities are to eliminate Stillbirth, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other Sudden Unexpected Infant Deaths (SUID) with programs of research, education and advocacy. We also provide compassionate grief support to all those affected by the death of a baby through a dedicated crisis hotline at 800.221.7437.
I made this quilt for Chase's Momma in 2012 out of his little clothes.

what a sweet little quilt. I hope I never have to make one of those. I made one for a friend with her deceased husband's shirts, that was a hard thing to do. I imagine it would be hard to make one out of sweet baby clothes, especially since I still have a little one myself.
