Our group voluntarily puts together "hug" quilts for quilty sisters and/or families, near and far who are going through a rough time, be it surgery, cancer treatments, loss of a loved one, etc.
I've sent in blocks to add to them over the time we've had this group, but this was my first chance to quilt and bind one. I happily accepted the position when asked... since the recipient lives in Cambridge, ON. It was way cheaper for me to mail a completed quilt to her than it would have been for one of the members from the states.
I enjoyed every minute of quilting this "hug" and was so grateful to all the members who had contributed blocks, some were even signed by a member in Australia!
Anyways, Kathy posted on her blog about the quilt and I was awestruck with the pictures she took and the things she wrote.
It just goes to show that a "hug" comes in many forms and they're always appreciated.
