Quilt With Us

If anyone is interested how about lets put together a or some baskets after christmas of things to send to "Linda Sue" to help keep her busy and not let her get depressed. It could be fabrics, patterns, etc. , books or anything she could do while recovering.Denise and I talked and I think Linda is concerned this could stop her from sewing. She said they need to figure out ways to allow her to sit at the machine in a wheelchair if need be. If you want I will be glad to accept things on her behalf and pay for the shipping and put together the basket(s) and send them to her. Anyone got any ideas??? Contact me if you do. Hope I am not overstepping my boundary by asking about this!!!

I wrote to Linda and told her how to sew from a w/c...I have sewn using my forearm on the pedal in front of my machine for 30 yrs. So, she'll get the hang of it! Count me in on whatever...I can see Linda starting quilting classes at rehab!

Count me in.   I would be more than happy to send any of my patterns to her for free. Or to you for the basket.  my email is sewsimplepatterns@hotmail.com.  Just let me know your address and I'll get them in the mail this week so you can have them right away.  I leave town on Wednesday for the weekend so I'd like to get them in the mail before that. You are sooooo thoughtful to come up with this idea.  We all love Linda Sue.

If she doesn't already, she should learn how to do english paper piecing.  It is great handwork and you can make some truly amazing things.  She would need templates, strong needles, thread, fabric.  I can see her making a wonderful scrap quilt using charm squares people send her like Joana suggested.  I would have no problem ordering some stuff off of Connecting Threads website or sending you some $$ to order.

I think it's a great idea--on a much smaller scale, I had thought of sending charm squares in cards.  Is there anyone here on QWU who is an occupational therapist?  I'm sure that Linda will be getting OT when the time comes, but a quilter with expertise in this field has probably already thought of ways to make it possible to continue sewing.
