Some stories are so sad. And Kilah’s story is the saddest kind – a beautiful three year old child beaten near death by someone who was tasked with caring for her. Kilah’s stepfather has been arrested in the attack and Kilah is fighting back from a coma. She has a long recovery ahead of her. But thanks to Karen, a quilter with a huge heart, Kilah will not only have the prayers of the quilting community behind her, but a beautiful and cheerful quilt to help her heal.
Before I became a physical therapist, I worked for several years with abused and neglected children…so, stories like Kilah’s always call out to me. I was honored to be able to make a quilt block to contribute to Kilah’s quilt:
I don’t know if Karen will be posting a photo of the completed quilt on her blog, but if she does, I will be sure to share it with you. In the meantime, check out these wonderful blocks made by Rebecca over at Threadbias. This is going to be the most beautiful quilt for a very special and brave little girl.
