I made this blue quilt last winter and donated it to a friend who was organizing a gala for the Canadian Transplant Association as a way to raise awareness and express gratitude. My friend, Matt, had become very ill with an auto immune liver/bile duct disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, or PSC. In the fall of 2014 Matt had a liver transplant, and received a portion of his cousin’s liver. Both donor and recipient are doing well.
I’ve made this quilt twice and love its simplicity. It’s fun to make and goes together very quickly.
I met Matt through an online group for people with PSC. Yes, that includes me. However, PSC affects people in many different ways and my doctors think that I will remain fairly healthy.
If you haven’t thought about organ donation, please do. If you’re procrastinating about signing the card, please don’t!
Here’s a link to some good info about PSC. Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
Thanks for reading.
