What a wonderful story! I had a wonderful friend that I quilted with. Her and ehr husband used to quilt all the time. He was just as active in it as she was. He was so proud of the ones he made! But then he got early onset Parkinsons and she lost her quilting partner. I had shown some interest, had MS and needed something to do so I called her up. So I had a very patient teacher, she stayed at my level and never did any quilting whle I did mine. Plus she cooked the most wonderful meals when I went to her house! She has since then moved to Arkansas and I haven't made a quilt since.
