    My DD just told me that her FIL was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Don't know how extensive the treatment will be. I was thinking I might make him a quilt if he has to undergo chemo, radiation, etc. I don't know him very well but know he is a motorcycle and hunting enthusiast so I could pick up one of those themes in a quilt. Do you think making him a quilt would be appropriate?

    Of course it would be appropriate, and probably very much appreciated. It's kind of you to think of it.

    I wouldn't know why it would not be appropriate?
    .... that being said, only you know the "real" answer to this, according to your DDs and your own association with him.

    I made a quilt for my brother in law that just finished treatment. The hospital is very cold where treatments are given and it will give him much comfort!

    I think a guilt would be very nice. Your DD would be the best one to answer how it would be received by this person. What a wonderful thing for you to want to do. Kudos.

    even if he does not need it for treatments, the thoughtfulness would help him feel better

    I think it is quite appropriate & thoughtful. I know my friend took the quilt I made her to her chemo treatments. If he doesn't have to have them (my FIL didn't for prostate cancer)I think he will appreciate the gesture of your thoughtfulness.
