Quilt With Us

Still have not done any sewing.

Mid-June my older daughter was admitted to the hospital with an initial diagnosis of MS.  She was not responsive to the treatment so was transfered to a teaching hospital in Portland,  She has continued to decline and they have not been able to determine the cause.  So now she has been moved to a long-term acute care facility.  She is mostly unresponsive.  My other daughter and i are going over this weekend to see her - it is about 200 miles west of Pendleton.

I have received the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book - and am so inspired - just want to sew and sew.  We have a new fabric store here - but really I do have enough scrap material to begin some of these patterns.  When I was very young, I tore a page out of a magazine with the Maple Leaf pattern.  I had that page for years and always imagined making a quilt with that pattern.  The page has long since disappeared, but the pattern is in the book.  So perhaps that is one of the patterns I will being with.  Now to go thru my material - just not this weekend - perhaps next.

Hi Barb, Praying that your daughter starts recovering soon. Coming to Portland from Pendleton is no easy task under such stress. We're just across the bridge in Vancouver but get over to Portland all the time. There are a lot of good doctors here in the area. Where is she at? I know it can be rough with travel and stress but let me know when you're around and maybe we can take a coffee break... Praying for you and your family.

Will remember your daughter, you and your family in my prayers.  Words can't express what this site means to me... whether it's inspiration and motivation on my quilting projects or comfort and encouragement in my personal life, I can find it through my friends on here.  My God comfort and strengthen you through this difficult time.  He's there...lean on him...he won't let you fall or put more on you than you can handle with his help.

Hello. This is Barbara's other daughter, Kathi. I just wanted to tell you how much your support means to my mother and I. She has needed your prayers, encouragement and friendships during this difficult time. She tells me over and over how special you all are to be here for her. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you! What a blessing each of you are! Kathi Schulze

Hi Barb. Are you in Pendleton?  My DH grew up in Athena.  So sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope they can find out what is going on and get her on the road to improvement soon. Glad you have the quilting to help relax you. What a blessing it is for many of us. Prayers for you and your daughter.

Barb, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter.  That must be so difficult to deal with especially being so far away from her!  I hope that working on those quilt blocks brings you some peace and comfort.

Barb...so sorry to hear about your daughter's condition.  As a mother I cannot imagine how difficult this is for you.  Prayers going out for you, your daughter and the rest of your family.

Barb, I'm sorry to hear of your daughter's condition.  What a difficult, painful situation for you.  Safe travels this weekend. 

It is exciting to start new projects, especially those that inspire us.  It will be so enjoyable making up each block.  Don't forget to show us pictures as you go!

So sorry to hear about your daughter. It can't be easy with her being so far away. I am glad that you have something to look forward to, it must have been meant to be for you to finally make that block. Would love to hear about your progress and your critique on the book.

My heart and prayers go out to you on your daughter's care.

I enjoyed reading the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, until my mom asked for the book. It does have CD of the patterns, but you may wish to buy a set of templates or use rotary cutting with the idea of each block.
