Comfort quilt

A young cousin in our family is going through cancer treatment in Southern California. We’ve been sending him cards, but Cousin Sylvia thought a quilt would be a comfort.


Sylvia sent out an e-mail to family women in Northern California and invited them to her house to help piece a quilt with love. Catherine, Patsy, Lisa, and Cindy gathered there on a Saturday and worked very hard. I was unable to come.

Sylvia bought appropriate flannels for a guy. She said there were mainly pinks and blues and children’s prints for sale so she had to go to several fabric stores to find just the right ones for him. She came up with the pattern for his quilt and cut all the fabric for the blocks. Catherine designed the ocean wave, surfboard and sun block because he loves the ocean and surfing.

My daughter-in-law, Toni, quilted the top on her long-arm machine. It looks so cozy.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the
hang of it!

that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece
of writing which I am reading now.
