Mark's Car Quilt on the Way to being Finished....Lovely and wonderful for your thought and care!
We are so excited....Connie came over today and we planned on what fabric to use to frame in many of the darling car blocks that friends made for Mark when he found out he had brain cancer. Rhere is enough now to make a nice quilt for him to keep warm...he is ALWAYS cold with all of the chemo he is taking....you cannot believe how many pills!
This is a light in the dark times behind us...NICE quilters, offered to make blocks and here they are! He still gets post cards from some of you and he LOVES reading them and showing them to the Grandkids.
Connie and I are going to frame in some of the car blocks in red and then the sashing will be in the black and then we will do a colorful border. It will be a lovely, warm quilt for this winter for him to keep warm and feel loved.
Thank you so much for those of you who made these blocks and sent cards and post cards....yesterday in church the pastor talked about compassion and how it isn't something you read about but something you put into action. I immediately thought of quilters and what they have done for us. I am thankful for each of you and the compassion and love you have sent to us, THANK YOU>
stay tuned for this to be put together and then quilted!
