Patty from Florida (USA)


Patty has been quilting for 45 years and made this lovely quilt for her brother. Here is her very touching story:

"On June 12th we remember the 3rd Anniversary of the Pulse shooting in Orlando Fl where many lost their lives. My local quilt shop had put together fat quarter packages for purchase to help support those affected by this horrible tragedy. I wanted to do my part in supporting this cause and made my purchase.

Not knowing what I would make, it sat on my sewing table for a couple of weeks. I received a phone call from my brother Michael, MSW,LCSW. He shared with me that he had been asked to help counsel the survivors, friends, and first responders. I knew at that moment that HE would need something to comfort himself and that I would be creating something special for him with this beautiful fabric.

Finished Quilt for Orlando


He has chosen to actually hang this quilt in his home as a beautiful reminder of all the people he has helped counsel these last 3 years and knowing they will continue to need his help for many years to come. My heart is full knowing I have brought comfort to someone who in turn comforts others. "

Thank you so much for sharing Patty!

    This is a beautiful quilt. A wonderful way to show and share in your support for Orlando and the victims of the shooting.

    What is the design pattern you used. Our neice just recently told the family that she’s bisexual. We all totally support and love her. Her 18th bday is coming and I would love to make her a similar quilt.
