Sheryl and Aaron Hulse, owners of Custom Quilts and More in Macon, were contacted in December by a hospice nurse named Kim.

Kim had a client in decline who had been busy making a quilt and had mentioned several times she wished to live long enough to see her quilt finished.

The top fabric, an arrangement of floral squares on a blue background, was complete but still needed to be quilted with other layers. Kim was hoping to have it completed for her client as an early Christmas present.

The Hulses were so moved by Kim’s gesture that they offered to complete the quilt at cost, putting aside Christmas presents for their own family to do this act of kindness.

Kim’s client was thrilled to receive the completed quilt and to have her last wish fulfilled.
