On Cody's blog, Tim says: Thanks for doing this for Cody!! Cody keeps the apartment at Walter Reed very cold so the quilt is much appreciated by everyone :)
Later Tim writes: His Mom will be the one using the quilt most likely as Cody stays very hot with the all of the medications he is taking. Because he stays so hot, he keeps the air conditioning very low and freezes his Mom. Tim Cody
Hmmm. Sounds to me like Cody's Mom needs her own quilt! Anyone interested? If so, I will longarm it for free.
THAT WAS FAST! Laura Mourning has decided to make a quilt for Cody's Mom and already has it planned out. Thanks, Laura! Thus L&L Quilts--totally unofficial--is born.
Laura is also the angel who is going to do the binding on both of these quilts. She too is a 24/7 caregiver so she knows what it's like--joys, stress, exhaustion, etc. Quilting keeps her sane or so she says.
The quilt is here for Nancy who is Cody's Mom.
Laura Mourning pieced this beautiful quilt. She will also bind it and then ship it Nancy.
Oct 16: Around this time Laura was shopping and planning the quilt top.
Oct 29: The quilt is here.
Nov 01: Quilting day. Using a beautiful and fast meander called Bird Bath. I considered something more elaborate but decided the fabric is elaborate enough. Will use Dream Orient silk batting. Loading. Quilting. Still quilting. Still quilting. LOL. Almost done. Finished.
Nov 02: Shipped to Laura to do the binding.
Nov 08: Laura finished the binding & thus the quilt.
Nov 10: Laura's binding photos (collage here).
Nov 17-21: Cody (and Nancy) were in the hospital.
Nov 20: Nancy picked up her quilt from the post office.
Nov 22: They made it home for Thanksgiving.
Nov 27: Received a nice note from Nancy: "It is beautiful and the colors that I love!"
