Terry's Quilt

Terry and John and their children live in Ohio, USA. They had a perfectly happy life till last week when John had a terrible accident at work.... a bulldozer rolled over him and pinned his right leg.

He has had to endure several operations in the last week and still has to stay in ICU for a while. Thankfully he is making good progress but his leg has had to be amputated.

Terry is keeping the homefront going and in a very brave way, keeping life as normal for their children as possible whilst not only dealing with all this at home but also making daily hospital trips (an hours drive away).

Laurie of a yankee quilter's blog, has started a block appeal to give Terry a quilt of love from us all to support her in this difficult time. If you want to help Laurie to give Terry a quilt hug of support and make a block, please go to her blog.

A giveaway with several goodies to support the effort is also on her blog and you can win these and either keep them yourself or donate your possible win to Terry as many people are doing.

Thank you Laurie for this wonderful initiative. I hope Terry gets a large quilt hug so she may find comfort in the knowledge our online quilting community is thinking of her family.

The deadline for blocks is 25 October.

Thanks for sharing the story about your friends Terry and John. That is such a hard thing for anyone to go through. I'm headed to sign up for a block now. We will pray for their family.
