    I made this quilt for a friend who had a stroke at the young age of 45 and was in a coma for 6 weeks. He awoke a quadriplegic. Over time he has regained a 'small' amount of use in one hand. He has dysphasia (unable to speak very well and swallowing problems) and in a wheelchair. He had seen my quilt photos and mentioned that he would like to purchase a small lap size and that his favorite color is blue. This was my gift to him.

    He was thrilled! I received an email from him and you could feel the appreciate and love in this thank you.
    I had to mail it to him as he lives in Washington and I'm in Iowa. In fact I haven't had the pleasure to meet him. We "met" on MySpace and have been corresponding for several years now. His wife is a very lovely person too!
