Quilting Comfort


Not much sewing getting done this month. I was able to make my April BOM. I get more and more excited about this Designer Mystery BOM every time I make a block.

I would like to ask a big favor of my readers. Would you help a friend of mine?? You see my BFF has a daughter that has been fighting a very aggressive cancer. My BFF made her daughter a beautiful quilt while she was in Alaska caring for her grandchildren. Her daughter has written a story about her mom in a little contest. And she needs votes. Can you take a minute and vote for Carlee's story at www.thymes.com . There is a $300 prize that Carlee would like to give her Mom. Her story is listed under Quilting Comfort by Alaska Mommy. Thanks so much for taking just a few minutes to help my friend win a much deserved prize.

**** I think I have fixed the link. Thank you so much!

Oh, Jocelyn, what a moving story, sniff! Makes my heart feel for these kinds of situations. Make the grace of God lift them & completely heal her.

TY for sharing this with me/us.

I love your block colors.

Hope all is well with you & your family, sweet friend.

I just haven't been able to get back my blogging momentum since I was sick ... I know it upset a couple of gals but I'll get there.

Have a great weekend.
TTFN ~ Hugs of love, Marydon
