Canyon Dance By: Julie Huffman, Idaho, USA
Two years ago my friend Deb fell in love with a quilt I made for another friend. Deb was ill with emphysema so I surprised her with her own version of the quilt in 2009. It was just right for laying in her recliner. Deb passed away Feb. 10, 2010 and I received the quilt back from her sisters.

Liz’s Friendship Braid By: Scranda, United Kingdom
Liz was a good friend of mine when we were teaching together, and a great support to me when I was Acting Head. She’s finally decided that it’s time to retire and I wanted to mark the occasion with a quilt, and Friendship Braid seemed the perfect choice.

Quilt of Love and Hope By: Erilyn, New Zealand
My friend Marjorie was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2008. This quilt I made for her as a comfort – the greens in the center for calming, flowers for cheering and quilted with feathered hearts (surrounded and made with love) and angels (to keep watch). Thankfully, Marjorie is still with me today.
