    This is a beautiful quilt. Kitty too. I love it. Beautiful colors. Bless your brother with prayers, and to get through all the steps it takes to take all of the meds and other tests etc. I know he'll be glad to get thru all of Chemo and stuff that makes him feel so bad.

    How pleasant the color combinations look together, it is stunning, love the pattern and the gorgeous feline camped out on the quilt. I pray the quilt blesses your brother, knowing all the love you have sewn into it so he could wrap himself up in it. I pray his treatment will eradicate the cancer, and this should make him smile.

    I also want to say a big thank you to the board. I picked up a number of tips and help from other board members, including: overdying the backing, not pressing the binding, trying a continuous bias binding, using wonder clips while hand-sewing the binding, how to wash a quilt with wool batting and probably others I can't think of right now. So, thank you!
