A Quilter’s Generosity

I was going to wait until this quilt top was quilted, but I am so overwhelmed with the generosity of having received this quilt top, I needed to do it now. Recently Jo’s Country Junction added a page to their blog for charity projects. I posted that I would receive quilts, quilt tops and/or blocks for the Hospice group I quilt with. I immediately heard from two quilters and very quickly received this quilt top. A very big thank you to Jackie who sent it all the way from Canada!

I really like this pattern and am going to do a pencil sketch for a possible future quilt. It is lovely and I am so looking forward to seeing it quilted and bound. The generosity continues as a friend has offered to quilt the quilt on her long arm.  This week when I get together with the hospice sewers I will look for a backing from our stash and cut the batting. Even better, I imagine the comfort and warmth it will bring a patient!

  1. As a former Hospice volunteer, as a daughter
    of a mother and father who spent their final three weeks on earth at Gordon Hospice, as a cousin
    to a cousin whose last days were spent at Gordon
    Hospice, as a friend of one now in Hodpice care,
    I am so grateful for you for gifting these beautiful
    quilts to comfort and sooth both patients, family and friends. Until you’ve been in those life situations,
    you have no idea how much these quilts mean,
    With deep gratitude, Diane
