    Going away gift for Co worker

    One of our co workers has left do to heath issues. Everyone at work shared the cost and I made this for him.
    He is very sentimental I knew what it would mean to him. He cried like a baby, we knew he would but, it just proved what I already knew.

    How wonderful to do that for him, and so great that is was appreciated. It will give him a lot of comfort in the weeks to come.
    What is the name of the piece block?

    It's so good to see that people still have a good heart, like you. Seems like a lot of it has disappeared. but, I hope not. And I know not on this board. So, lets keep it up.

    It's wonderful! Now you need to let each co-worker sign a block!

    Very touching story. The quilt is lovely, but the sentiment is even better.
