For anybody who has been on the receiving end of a handmade quilt, it can make these cold winter days seem so much more tolerable, and for some local Cancer patients, they too received the gift of these beautiful quilts.

A  group called Northern Lights Machine Quilters Guild made some  patients at Essentia Health in Duluth feel very special with 20 donated blankets available  to them. Each of these quilts is made with love, and can take anywhere from 10-300 hours to make. What a beautiful gesture to know that your hard work could help comfort someone in a time of need.
