Canadian Quilts of Valour

This is my second Quilt of Valour. The first one was sent anonymously to the group so I have no idea who got it but this one I presented myself. The recipient is a young man in my community who was injured and told he may never walk again. As you can see he is standing upright on his own. I have watched him at my local gym for a couple of years now working, working, working to get his mobility back. The presentation took place in the gym's spin studio where he is now able to teach spin classes. Don't worry about me, I don't do spin classes. It was such an honour for me to present the quilt to such a deserving young veteran. Piecefully, Joanne
