Jessica Roush took a quilt that hangs on wall of her baby daughter’s room and entered it into the quilt category of the Artists’ Guild art show during CorryFest on Sunday.
Jessica didn’t expect the quilt to win a ribbon. In fact, she entered the quilt in the show for an entirely different reason.
“We had just entered so people could see it,” Jessica said.
That’s because a lot of friends and family didn’t have an opportunity to see Jessica’s daughter, Konnyr Mae Roush, during her short life.
Konnyr Mae passed away from a rare case of colitis when she was just shy of 2 months old.
