A woman posted on the Facebook page for the Pat Sloan quilt along that a friend of hers had just told her she had cancer, and this friend wanted to make a quilt for her out of the first block of the sampler. She asked if anyone wanted to make a block to help out to let her know.
Having been down that road as well, I made a block and sent it on its way. I asked if she had any preference for colors, fabric type, and so forth and she said no preferences at all so I just grabbed what I had available. Better to be started and finished than just have good intentions.
