Diane deFreitas designed most of the quilts
in this book and this one is especially
meaningful to her. Her daughter, Andrea,
is part of her school's play, so Diane chose
school colors of the black and gold for
her quilt. Imagine the fun of having it
signed with autographs and messages by fellow
thespians, and the delight of remembering
a special time for years to come.
This quilt celebrates
the life a very special young man. Benjamin
Mollett, 6 years old, was diagnosed with
cancer on Christmas Eve, 1998, and passes
away the day before Thanksgiving, 1999.
The bottles hold messages from doctors,
nurses, family members, and friends and
his short life is recorded there. The legacy
of his smile is captured in the quilt and
continues through the Benjamin Smiles program
which was founded by his mother, Vicki Mollett.
The program provides cheer and comfort to
young cancer patients and their families
by gifting them with small, brightly-colored
pillows. If you wish to help by making and
donating a few easy pillowcases, Vicki would
love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
