French Braid by their friend

Lisa and Rachel are two amazing and lovely women who when I first met them, didn't even know how to sew.  Know Lisa teaches classes in the French Braid quilt, and Rachel has recently finished law school.  This quilt top was made by their friend who was taking Lisa's class.  Sadly, she became ill and passed away before she could finish the quilt.  While she was in the hospital, Lisa and Rachel took a piece of fabric and had their friend sign her name in pen on the fabric.  Lisa then embroidered over her signature with thread, and now it's preserved with the quilt.  Quilted with an edge to edge design of dragonflies and leaves. What a lovely memento of a dear friend.
