Recently, our community saw the passing of one of our bright and energetic lights.
As those who love her gathered close to support her in her final days, an amazingly inspiring idea emerged. Someone suggested gathering our scrap fun fur, to make a quilt to wrap her up in love.
A special day was arranged, and folks brought their sewing machines, sergers, bags of fun fur, bits of embellishment, food, drinks, music, and love for our friend. By the end of the day, there were rows of finished squares, all made by different people, showing their affection and support. Ultimately, the squares were made into two quilts of furry love, delivered to our friend who was “overjoyed”, and they now belong to her two children. Friends from out of town sent in their furry contributions, and some late arrivals were made into pillows for our beloved’s family, to send love to them too.
“Quilts delivered, we poured a whole lotta love into those squares and it shows.”
Thank you, Y, for coming up with this brilliant idea. I am so grateful to be part of a community like this.
