Default A Huggle sorely needed.

Over the years that I have been a quilter I have given so many quilts away, many to Project Linus but many more to friends, families and other people in need, I call them my "Huggles". Last night I gave this to Sam my Sewing machine man, it is made completely from Quilting Flannels so it is exceptionally cosy.

What is amazing that this wonderful man has fought Leukaemia for over 13 years! Without telling us he carried on giving TLC to our loved but old and tired antique and vintage machines and with his wonderful wife by his side he keeps bees and makes the most wonderful Honey.

If you haven't noticed I admire this man so much, I went through my Cancer fight nearly 50 years ago and I hope I did it with the dignity and courage that he shows, GO SAM GO.

TOP TIP: Go through your UFOs and make a Huggle ready, just in case.

The quilt is beautiful and being flannel must be so comfy. I'm sure he will appreciate it! Good for you and good for him!

That is a great idea to have a comfort quilt waiting in the wings. You never know when an occasion will arise where you don't have time to construct one.

How wonderful of you to give him that beautiful quilt. He will always know he has a good friend by his side.
