    What a comfort this will be for Sam, I am sure he will always love and care for it. Knowing it was made with your love and kindness makes it all the more special.

    Yep, I now have a dozen all washed and ready to be gifted to somone. I have quite a bit of flannel in my stash, so I will make a couple "Huggles" to keep handy too. That is a wonderful story. Bless you and your sewing machine man.

    If he turned away when you gave it to him it was to hid the tears that sprung up! I've never thought about having a quilt or two on hand. After about 100 quilts I have finally made one for us and intend to make one more. All the rest have gone to family and groups in need (for blankets or to auction them for funds). I love the idea of having one handy in case of just suddenly realizing it may be a comfort! Thanx!

    I enjoy making and giving these smaller quilts that I always called NAP QUILTS. The name Huggles is much better thank you for the story. I have friends who say these aren't worth the time and see no value in them but I disagree. They are much nicer and more lasting than a Get Well card. Blessings to you.

    Huggle quilts are what make us quilters, I'm sure all of us have done at least one if not many in this same vein and yes keeping one on hand is important. When I moved to this small community 12 years ago I noticed a house burned to the ground. So I asked the ladies at the bank what had happened then went to the car and brought back a quilt in a pillow case. I asked if they could give it to that family to help them rebuild there home. That has been one of many I like the term huggles to share with others since hugs mean so much to me.

    How wonderful of you to to give him the quilt. Flannel makes such a cozy one also. God bless him and I hope he beats
    the minus.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
