    Butterfly QAYG Quilt

    This quilt is made from left over blocks from a quilt I made for my aunt probably 5 years ago and forgot that I had 38 left. Giving this quilt and a pillow (only have one block left) to a gal who lost her son due to complications of being hurt in Iraq. He told her that he wanted her to send care packages to deployed soldiers and this has been her mission since his death 6 years ago. We happened to meet because I saw an article in our paper and brought her some quilts to put in the care packages. Then I brought it to our guild so the last two years we have made over 100 quilts. While she spoke to our guild in Oct. she made the comment that her son never received a quilt so that's when it was decided she needed one. Since then I have learned she is dealing with cancer, the second time. She sure has had a lot of horrible things happen to her. Plan to give it to her soon. Thanks for looking.

    Agreed, the butterflies are lovely. They should help to brighten her day. Hopefully she won't need chemo, but the quilt will come in handy, if so. I understand that chemo sometimes lowers our ability to keep warm. Cuddling in a beautiful quilt is bound to help her.
