    I am making a quilt for a teacher who works in the same school district I work for who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She is only 29 years old, has two preschool age children and had a radical mastectomy a couple weeks ago. Since her surgery, her family has been through the flu, terrible colds and her young son is facing eye surgery on March 17th. She will begin chemo on Thursday, March 3rd and then was just told she will also have to undergo radiation therapy.

    Anyway, I had all of her students and the staff members of her school sign their names on squares of fabric to be incorporated into her quilt and I'm working on sewing it together today and tomorrow. Trying to get it done by Thursday for her first chemo session, but not sure I can get it done by then. I need help with the wording for the label to put on the quilt. I'm not sure what it should say. Maybe something about how we hope the quilt can comfort her with our love and hugs. I don't know. Any suggestions out there? I don't want it to be depressing, but yet to show her how much everyone cares.

    You all are so creative, that I'm sure you can help me!!!

    I think you could change the verb to suit the use. 'Sleeps' for a bed quilt, maybe 'rests' for this one for a person in need of rest.

    I used 'snuggles' because it was my daughter's birthday lap size quilt and she doesn't slow down much.

    Just wanted to let you know that the quilt is finally ready for the label and this is what I am using. Knew the first time I read it, it was perfect and I didn't have to look any further for something to print on the label. Thanks so much for your help!!!
