Grace has always been a happy energetic child always on the go. She loved school and excelled in all her subjects. We were always visiting museums and libraries and never stopped. Grace has always loved art and designing cards and shoes for friends and family.

About two and a half years ago Grace started with joint pains and was diagnosed with joint hypermobility syndrome and had regular physio whilst at school. Then one day she was hot and her back hurt and I took her to hospital and that's when a long line of tests took place until she was eventually diagnosed with CFS/ME.

Grace initially reduced her schooling and then became home schooled for flexibility around her illness. Like every child the lockdown has been difficult. I know that this quilt will cheer Grace up immensely. Grace also loves her ginger cat Fredo!
