The Comfort of Quilts

Both of my parents died of complications of Parkinson’s disease.

I have a very dear friend, quite a bit younger than me, who has also been diagnosed with PD.

She’s having a hard time right now. We visited today and it was moving.

After my Mom died in 2010, I started the Parkinson’s Comfort Project to channel the gift of handmade quilts to people with this disease.

Quilters have been so very generous with their talents and their hearts, making objects of great beauty that not only warm but reduce anxiety and spread compassion to people who are struggling.

I made this bring quilt for my friend. I know how much she loves COLOR.

After all, she is the person who introduced me to quilting so many years ago.

We are launching a major fundraising campaign to spread our goal of providing comfort soon. I hope you can help.
