    I need some help deciding what to do .A lady I was quilting for suddenly passed a way last night. I was at that moment putting the last stitches in the binding.Should I let the family know I have the quilt now or wait till after the funeral? I thought it might give them comfort to have the last quilt she worked on now, but don't want to be a bother either. Not worried about getting paid at this point. What do you think?

    I would go on and contact them now. They also might want to display it at the funeral.

    I agree, Contact them now. I made a baby quilt years ago for my daughter's CampFire group leader. Each girl did a square and we did a surprise shower for her. The baby passed away at birth. They called and asked ME if they could bury the baby in the quilt. It will mean a lot to them.

    As difficult as it will be for them, I agree that they should know it is available if they want it now.
