The perpetrator was killed. My BIL was blinded in one eye and lost the other. He has had a long road but is doing well. The government gave him a seeing eye dog and apparently that has helped immensely

I cut all the dresdans pieces from fat quarters and the tiny bit of leftovers I cut 2 1/2 squares to make the corner blocks. I had the chartreuse fabric in my stash and truthfully I loved
