For a quilter, you can't have one without the other! My brother has been very sick and we are wearing out a path between his house and the hospital.
Quilting is calming and centering, and necessary for me when under stress, so I have been hauling this quilt back and forth - from home to hospital, to my house, to his house, to hospital, and back again.
The good news is that I have been getting a lot of hand quilting done. The bad news is that he is getting sicker. We have an appointment with the oncologist on Wednesday to see if they can recommend some treatment for him.
Until then, all he can do is stay warm, eat nutritious food, and sleep. All I can do is quilt and be with him.
Today I hope to finish up the quilting on block #9, which means I am more than half way finished the quilting on my "Journey of a Quilter"! I wrote a post about this project over at the Celebrate Hand Quilting blog if you want to take a look - click here. This photo shows how much quilting has been finished as of last week. Soon it will be time to think about the border quilting design!
