    Your friend will love it!

    I really like the idea of the passage quilts. Very thoughtful and I'm sure very much appreciated by all who see it.

    This should definitely brighten her day and if God decides to take her; her passage will also be loving. God bless you for your good work!

    I have a very good friend with stage four ovarian cancer; she has been going through some pretty bad things, such as two brain surgeries in less that a month.
    She is a cat lover and so when I found flannel that had cats on it, I had to have it. I made a good size lap quilt with a white flannel with a red toule design for the back. The cats were gray with red ribbon around their necks. Red in my friend's favorite color.
    2 Doods, can you tell me what kind of quilt you made for your friend? I don't understand what you mean by a "ribbon quilt"

    By the way, the Passage Quilt is a lovely idea and your group gets my thanks for making them. Keep up the very good and nice work. What a great bunch of ladies to put in their time to do this.

    That is a lovely quilt and what a wonderful thought. When my husband passed away I didn't know that he would be taken out in a body bag and it was a terrible shock to see that. Your group is doing a kind thing for the families.

    Hmmm, I have a friend (well, a little more than an aquaintance, but not a close friend) who has cancer. Now I'm thinking of making one for her. . . thanks for the wonderful idea! I know her husband would appreciate it. How do you present these?

    Oh how surprising. Phoning condolences to a friend today and she told me that she saw her brother taken from the nursing home . Said she thought of me because body was covered with a pretty quilt to give dignity not bl bag.
    Knew the undertaker for many yrs but was trying to distract her sister at same time. Was north of Toronto , ON

    (My husband was taken from house in body bag and very upsetting)
    Will tell friend "Passage Quilt" She'll like that.
    Coincidence or what !!! Beautiful string quilt.

    What a super thoughtful idea. I hope the Covers are then passed on to a family member tho help them in the grieving process. I hope you gals receive many blessings from creating these.

    Deb - Thank you so much for sharing about the passage quilt. My 96 year old mother is dying of cancer, and I hadn't even thought about when they remove her body!! I've got to make a quilt! How big do you make them?? Thanks again for sharing -- this will make a big difference to my family, and to all her friends at the senior apts. where she lives!!

    I made a quilt for friend that had cancer. He just passed on Sunday with his quilt in bed. I know that his family appreciated the quilt as it was a symbol that someone cares.

    It is a beautiful thing that you are doing, providing comfort in a difficult time.
