    This year our Quilt guild is making quilts for the local hospital chemo patients. This one I started two months ago, and like someone else on this board I have been struggling with finishing it. I have been taking baby steps and forcing myself to do one small thing everyday and I think I'm seeing the light out of this darkness. Today is the 1st day in two months that I'm starting to feel normal. Making these for someone with more problems than I have is helping me get through this. Just like the turbans, hope this gives someone who is very ill a good feeling and we want to let them know we care.

    My daughters and I made a quilt top out of the same fabric!! We used a rail fence pattern. Don't you LOVE this fabric?! We bought it when we were on vacation last year, and I really wish I had bought more of it, although we made a baby quilt and I think we have enough strips to make one more. That is so nice of you to make a quilt to donate for chemo patients. I am sure it will mean so much to someone. Its really beautiful!
