    This is for my friend who had a terrible mower accident last month and lost all her toes on her left foot. The blocks came from quilty friends on another forum and I sewed them together for her.

    I'm so sorry about your friend's accident. At least she'll have something nice to snuggle in when the leaves start flying (it sorta reminds me of that)

    A great quilt. Were they able to reattach your friends toes? How is she doing? So nice of you to do this for her.

    The toes had to be removed the foot was too badly damaged to save them.

    Thank you for all your kind comments.

    Oh, that's just so horrible for her! Terrible, terrible. Hope she will heal quickly. She'll most likely have lots of physical therapy, too????

    The quilt is just beautiful. I love that look and the scrappiness makes it very warm and inviting. Great job.

    What a wonderful quilt, and a lovely gift. I'm so sorry about your friend - what an awful accident!! I hope her recovery and rehabilitation goes well. Sometimes horrible life events have very positive outcomes - changes people's perspective on things...My brother lost some fingers in an accident, and I know it did for him. Made him more appreciative of what he has, not what he doesn't have!
