Gratitude for Keri

Gratitude for Keri by Shannon Turner

The featured quilt of the week in the January 23, 2011 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Gratitude For Keri.  It was created by Shannon Turner.

This quilt is actually part of a series of 14 quilts. Recently, Shannon was placed on total bed rest for 48 days before the birth of her son Joshuah. Nurses at the Rockdale Medical Center took care of her around the clock with incredible dedication. Once Shannon and Joshuah were home safe and healthy, Shannon decided that each of the 16 nurses who cared for her deserved a quilt! Gratitude For Keri is one of them. Each of the quilts is named Gratitude For with the nurse’s name completing the title.

I am sure that none of the nurses expected such an amazing gift, but service to others does have its rewards.
