Linda's Quilt


This was a group project for one of our dear midwives who was diagnosed with leukemia. I designed the quilt, prepped all 80 blocks and put it all together. Our department (Labor and Delivery) staff helped to color each block. I could have used a lot more, but ended up with a queen-sized quilt as it was. The pattern I chose was attic window. All blocks were colored with Crayola Crayons, then heat set. It was quilted by PM Quilting in Palmer Alaska. The quilt was eventually sent to Seattle for Linda Aldous who was undergoing treatment. Unfortunately she never got to see it. It arrived a day before she passed. We all liked to think Linda knew it was there and that we cared so much for her. This photo was taken at her memorial service with family and friends. Those that did not get to make or sign a block got a chance to not only see the finished quilt but sign it and send well-wishes. Her family received the quilt.
