I've never had the chance to participate in Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival before.

Our office collectively set a plan to provide meals to her and her family but I wanted to do something more. She knew I was a quilter and had often commented on my hobby so I knew a quilt was the way to go. She has such an out going and bubbly personality that I knew this quilt I was working on would become her quilt. And then I pushed to get it finished.
Of course nothing goes as smoothly as you plan and I had a lot of bumps along the way but in the end I had a beautiful quilt for her and I knew she would enjoy it for a long time to come. I am happy to update that while she is no longer my boss because she has moved on to another opportunity she is healthy and happy and enjoying her life and family. And that is the real joy of this quilt.
