While I was in Paducah, Judy/Homegirl brought 3 quilts, Jo/gramajojo brought 1, Pat/sidesaddles sent 4, Gavin, Bland50's grandson, brought 3 or 4 - I was not sure which, since he had other quilts that he showed us at the same time. (Please see separate post about Gavin!)
I had taken with me to Paducah a quilt from Lori/zfatcat, a quilt from Linda/Oasis, a quilt from Pat/sidesaddles, my own, and 1 from a member of my guild here in Crossville.
When I delivered the quilts we held up each one, and the lady was so thrilled to receive them on behalf of Merryman House, but I forgot to count them. In the past, a representative came to the QIAD facility at the fairgrounds to get the quilts, but this time they didn't have anyone available to come. It was an eye-opener to me to go there. I had to be let in a locked gate in a high, chain-link fenced area with barbed wire on the top. It made me realize the danger these women and children are in from their abusers.
I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for contributing to this Project From The Heart. We have shown those who will receive these quilts that others care. We all know the comfort a quilt can give, and now there will be a few more women and children who will know that comfort.
