Today I had the joy of presenting a quilt to a dear young man from our church.
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.)
