Stepping Stones

Today I had the joy of presenting a quilt to a dear young man from our church.
 I have known him many years, particularly though our son's Boy Scout troop.   He was just starting his first year in college when he suffered a brain aneurysm.  It was a miracle that someone saw him collapse and called for help immediately.

He survived, and after over a month in hospitals, he is now home and continuing his recovery there.  He has a long way to go, but each stepping stone takes him closer to recovery.  Each rehab session is another brick that rebuilds his life to normalcy.

I had started this quilt a long time ago, but pulled it out of the UFO pile and finished it for him with a fleece back.   Sometimes it's a blessing to have those unfinished quilt tops around, just waiting for the perfect moment to be finished with love and go to someone who needs a warm hug.

The quilt is Bonnie Hunter's "Bricks and Stepping Stones."  (I've linked that name to her free pattern.)
