    A dear friend found out she has breast cancer. To cheer her, and to have something to keep her warm, I found some really cheery fabric that I bought long ago, and did a modified warm wishes pattern. Since her husband is feeling the strain, too, I made him his own quilt, with midnight cowboy fabric on the front, and majestic wings fabric for the back. Start to finish, it took less than one week to finish both of them.
