We all have had something that happened in our past that we have to work through on those dreadful anniversary dates. I have 2 moments every year that I must get through, it usually takes me a few days. I use quilting to help me.
The most recent time happened this week and I decided I was going to work my way through this with a donation quilt. I have a bin full of blocks and bits of blocks and another bin of love blocks that were made by my friends. It's taken me quite a while to be able to use some of these. I am now at a place in my head where these blocks need to be used and given to others that need them.
Having no clue as to what I wanted to do, I started with some bits, made some blocks, put them on the wall . All of the sudden I needed one more block. I got out the bin of blocks from my friends. As I cried my way through them, I picked out the crazy patch heart to add to this quilt. I don't know who made it, I just know it was made with love. Thank you whoever you are. I hope this quilt will bring comfort to whoever receives it. It goes on the frame next.
