We have had 2 coworkers diagnosed with ALS in the past year. I have finally finished the first of the 2 quilts. It has taken a long time. Partly because of machine issues and partly because of other events (2 wedding gift quilts and a baby quilt). But, it also made me sad. I used one of my favorite patterns for men. And, I tweaked the block proportions to make it into a signature quilt. Some of my coworkers didn't know what to write since ALS is terminal. So, we decided that movie quotes from his favorite movies might be a good idea. I made it an oversized twin size to make sure it would fit the hospital bed well.
