A woman I know was, in 2007, swept off the beach in Mexico along with her fiance, by a "rogue wave" and were drowned, leaving behind her only child who was 19 years old at the time. The girl left behind had never known her biological father and her only biological family is a remaining grandmother. The young woman is a good friend of my daughter's. She told my daughter that she likes to think of her Mom has a mermaid. I'm making her a quilt using this fabric, which I think will perfectly portray how she likes to imagine visiting her Mom under the sea. Thank you Heather Ross for designing an image that so beautifully represents something so bittersweet.
