    Comfort Quilts for kids - With Caroline T

    So, I'm slow and forgetful but it always comes to me eventually. I should have posted this a month or so ago....

    I don't know how many of you recall the Pierce County Deputy that was shot and killed in January of this year. He left behind 3 precious boys. Ray and I were able to attend his funeral procession here in our town, and it was one of the most moving and emotional experiences of my life. I came away with this overwhelming feeling that I needed to do something for him, for his boys, in memory and support.

    And what do quilters do?

    So I got ahold of my quilty sister Caroline T. She and I made Comfort Quilts for the boys. I made the Seahawk one and Caroline made the other two (her work is awesome btw. And she's FAST!) My wonderful friend Sandy did the quilting for us and she even did the binding! I'm really happy and proud with the way these turned out. They've been delivered and I couldn't be happier.

    So here they are, thanks for looking!

    That was very generous of the two of you to do this for those boys. I was so sad I was unable to help you, but vertigo and sewing do not get along well.

    Thank you!!
