A quilt for Emily...


This week one of Chrissy's best friends in the whole world had a terrible car accident.
These kids have been friends since they were five
and are as close as close as could be.


Emily has been going through a really hard time before this happened
and we were devastated for her when we heard about the accident.
 I was wishing that I had time to make a quilt,
(I don't, haha) but then I remembered that I had sewn a jelly roll together
maybe a year ago and Shenleigh had quilted it.


So I just had to sew on the binding and Chrissy can give it to Emily.


It's backed with an old flannel sheet and it's light to go over her broken bones
but still be warm and cosy.


I remind myself again, that a gift given with love doesn't have to be fancy
or perfect (you can see some of the selvedges on some of the ends)
but it is enough that it is there when you need it.

What a wonderful gift Deb. 8 years ago one of my best childhood friends was in a serious car accident too, so I know just how Chrissy feels. Much love to her. xx

Hoping Emily heals up well with a pretty quilt to snuggle under, and that this is the end of her hard time.

Such a a lovely quilt to gift. Your blue spotty binding is just the right fabric. Love all the pretty cheerful stripes in the quilt.

I see your quilt made it to the front page of the Press today - I was glancing vaguely over the front page while waiting in the queue in Cafe 101, and recognised the backing fabric (because we used to have exactly those sheets when I was a child) and realised the story was about the same Emily you had talked about here.

Congrats on the brush with fame, and hope Emily and her baby recover well.

I saw the previous comment and looked online at The Press story. Good to see your quilt in use on Emily's hospital bed. Poor girl, she must be so frightened. Do hope she is getting all the comfort and support she needs at such a difficult time. I'm sure your quilt is helping, a tangible sign of love.
