    Here is a quilt I finished up on Saturday. I gave to the girlfriend of a guy I work with. He told me that she collects bears and likes red; so this was what I had left from another quilt. She has a rare kidney disease and has dialasis 3 times a week. She really loved it. and said she was taking it to dialasis with her. Elaine

    How sweet of you. I know that will give her comfort while getting dialysis. My mom was on it too and said she got very cold.

    Beautiful quilt!

    Really really cute! It's great she'll have it to hug while going through treatment. That was very nice.

    Anything that eases the pain and discomfort of dialysis is a good thing. Adding the warm hug of a bear paw is extra special. How nice of you.

    My sis married a guy with last name Bear - so I have been entertaining a similar idea.
