    A quilt I finished in december for my aunt when she began her treatments for cancer. This is from Stack The Deck by Karla Alexander, and is a small quilt - which is what I wanted for her. Something she could easily maneuver; warm, but not over-sized. She's grown rather frail.

    It's all flannel, with cotton batting. Wanting it to be soft and snuggly, I employed simple quilting with shiny brown thread: feather stitch in the ditch, and then a simple blanket stitch along each seam (to help reinforce them).

    It is my first completed quilt since I took a hiatus in the spring of 2008. I told my aunt that she could while away the chemo hours looking for all the little oopsies. lol...

    I'm sure she won't be looking for the oopsies in the quilt, instead she's going to admire it's beauty and the fact that you made it just for her! What a special niece you are. :thumbup:
