A quilt donation…

One thing about living in a small town, it’s the kind of place where everyone knows mostly everyone.  And if you don’t know that person, you know someone who knows that person.

And when someone gets an illness, it does send shock waves throughout the community.

A local girl has been diagnosed with some sort of cancer, she is fifteen.

So what do quilters do when someone is sick?  Of course, they make a quilt.

Our group made this for her, it was a split nine patch sashed with black homespun.

Machine quilted by my mother, stitched together by the group and bound by me. 

A group effort.  I do hope she likes it.

updated:  she loved it. 


  1. Such a pretty quilt, best wishes that she beats this terrible disease.

    1. Me too, Carole. She doesn't get to live at home for the time it takes to do treatment (we don't have treatment facilities in the country) so hopefully it's a bit of colour for her in a strange place.

  2. Well done all of you. I hope it gives her comfort and pleasure.

  3. How kind of you and your group not to forget your mother as well. What a beautiful show of team effort. My prayers to the young lady and her family. Again kudos to you and yours.
