Art Quilters Have a Good Heart

I am a member of MAQ, the  Mountain Art Quilters group and it was a sad e-mail that passed among us when our group leader, Ardy Tobin, suffered a heart attack while on a road trip with her husband.  Ardy was far from home (they were driving through Lincoln, Nebraska) when she luckily got the the hospital in time and had successful by-pass surgery.  We all made a heart for her and put it together in a quilt. She was really surprised! Good to see you up and about Ardy.
