My dear friend Xande (who shares my love of biking and quilting) gave me three 1/2 yard cuts of fabric, all with a sewing theme. Isn't she the best? I fussy cut one, and just cut the others down to 6.5" blocks. Then pulled things from my strings to make a courthouse step style block. For the police, of course.

"Long Arm Lane". Now that's MY street.
Driving to work on May 5th, I happened to see a police cruiser pulled over. I approached them, and gave the officer the quilt. I loved his reaction. "A quilt? Well that's a first." Then this afternoon I received an email from him, and here is the content of that email.
Hi Beth, I'm the Officer you gave the quilt to this morning. I just wanted to let you know it was an honor to give your quilt to a person in need. The person in the photo was trying to keep warm with a plastic tarp. I'm sure he will cherish your quilt in honor of your father, David Turner.
