A bag of quilts

Today I had a visit from Richard, whose wife Jane sadly died. She was a quilter, and he decided to honour her memory by having a fabric sale and quilting day, to raise money and make Linus quilts. 
He said he couldn't believe how the 'second hand' fabric went, and how generous people were.  He raised about £3,000 from the sale (makes me quake at how much my own stash would fetch!) and about 50 quilts were made or started on the day from Jane's fabrics.  

He very kindly brought 22 of the quilts over to give hugs to Leicestershire children, a county where Jane had formerly worked as a nurse.  What a lovely thing to do, and a special way to honour his wife's memory.  Have no doubt that all these gorgeous quilts will go to spread love and joy!
