    What about a variation of an "I Spy" kind of quilt showing pictures of things that she likes to do (hobbies, etc) or places that she has visited or would like to visit. If I was going for regular chemo treatments, I would be more comforted by something that would truly put me in my happy place. A quilt containing pictures from "happy" moments in my life would give me comfort and joy during such a difficult time. If she enjoys gardening or cooking, you could use fabric the represents those hobbies. Maybe her family could help by providing some "fun" pictures to use in a quilt.

    Ditto! Very nice quilt. I agree that reminding her of the disease with a quilt that has too much of a specific breast cancer theme is not a very pleasant idea. Why not just find out what her tastes are and try for something that would fit in for years to come? She can look at it and think of the comfort brought by you, and of the triumph we all hope she will have over this terrible disease.
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

    Thank you all so much - I knew you'd be of guidance. I have a Watermelon Bali Pops and will look for a quick quilt to use those and it will be bright and cheery. She would like a modern one, I think.

    There was a thread about this same topic a few days back - interesting responses - and now I can't find the thread!

    I agree with some of the replies re: using a lot of pink.

    I think any pattern would do How about a D9P or Magic square or anything but one that screams hey I've got cancer! Missouri Quilt Company has some great ideas for quick quilts with charms and layer cakes on youtube.

    I suggest keeping your daughter's friend's personality in mind when choosing the patten and material.

    Why not use that yummy Bali Pops & make a Jelly Roll Race quilt? It's modern-looking. I think that would be perfect! Please post again & let us know what you decide on.
