About two weeks before we headed on our two week trip to visit family and friends back home, we heard some scary news. One of Grizz's aunts was diagnosed with breast cancer and was starting chemo treatment soon.
I asked a quilting lady from church who has a long arm machine if she'd be willing to quilt it for me - just a quick stipple pattern. She happily agreed and brought it back to me the next day... WOW! I would have just done echo quilting along the blocks if she didn't have time (seeing that I was in a time restraint and leaving the next week!), but I'm very thankful she took care of it. That gave me a week to add the binding, which I finished hand-sewing in the car on the way home :)
