Quilt Squares for Lily

See explanation below.
Thank you so much for the sweet squares you have sent for Lily. They are so precious. I get so excited to read each one of your notes and I know Lily is going to just love this. I am posting some of them today.
The last picture is a shirt given to me from my granny. When my granny was a young mom, she lost her oldest boy, Jimmy, to an unknown heart condition. He was outside riding his bike and he fell over and died immediately. He was 12 years old. She bought this shirt on the Thursday before he died on Friday. It was part of his "back to school" clothes. It has been sitting inside of a chest all these years just waiting to be a part of Lily's quilt. Thank you Granny.
