    Talking Quilt for Co-Worker

    A co-worker of mine was hit by a car a month ago and has been in ICU since. About 20 of us got together and made this quilt for her recovery. Only 3 of really sewed but we had other help by trimmming blocks, pressing fabric and taught 3 others how to sew the blocks. We had blocks range in sizes from 11.5 to 12.5 inches, but everyone had a good time working on the project. We used t-shirts from school and signed our names for the label.

    Your friend is indeed blessed to have 20 great friends who cared so much to work as a team on her behalf. I pray for your friend's recovery, may God heal her body.

    When your friend uses this quilt, she will be wrapped in love. She is lucky to have friends like you and her other co-workers. Hope she makes a full recovery soon. Thank you for sharing.

    This truly is beautifully made full of love, emotions, blessings and well wishes. I would also like to say that she is really lucky to have friends like you all and when she will get this quilt, she's gonna recover more faster.

    Talk about being surrounded by angels! What great friends you are to each other. Prayer, love and a quilt is a medicine that can't be bought. Blessings to all of you.
    Pay It Forward.

    Such a wonderfully thoughtful project for someone you obviously care about very much! It's beautiful and I'm sure she'll enjoy it for years to come!

    What a wonderful comfort quilt. Knowing everyone cares so much should really give her recovery more purpose. The quilt is just lovely. May she make a complete recovery.
