    I know, another D9P. I had to pick a pattern that I could make quickly and I did. Started Friday night and finished hand sewing binding this morning. Quilted diagonally through blocks and decided to quilt an on point square in the light fabric. It's approx. 50 X 62 ".
    I made this quilt for a benefit for a family man in my community that has an inoperable malignant brain tumor. Cobra insurance is running out very soon and they are taking his drivers license away because of risk of seizures with radiation treatments. So there goes his income, he's a truck driver.
    Very pleased that people I know are buying tickets. They're $1 but everyone is purchasing 5, 10, or 20. I'm so happy to be able to do this.

    Your quilt is gorgeous, I am particularly attracted to that wonderful paisley! Most generous of you to offer this comfort to someone in great need of comforting.

    I love D9P and yours is beautiful. I like how you quilted it as I had a time deciding how to quilt the one I did. Such a sad situation and a nice thing you did. Hope it brings in a lot for him!

    I hope the benefit earns lots of $$$ for this dear man. Maybe whoever wins the quilt will donate it back to him. That would be just awesome! It is really a nice quilt. Love the paisley fabric.

    I love your quilt! Fantastic choice of colors. You've just changed my color placement on the quilt I'm making - the darker of the two contrasting colors is going to be the middle square now! I love how the lightness of the 4 lighter ones make the others pop!

    Great quilt - with lots of caring shining threw! The backing is so old fashioned looking to me. I hope the quilt brings in lots of support for this man and his family.

    How gracious and loving you are, and beautiful, precise work. You inspire me (you all do).
    Blessings and prayers for the "driver".

    The gift of giving is such a reward. You are a special person for thinking of this dear soul, in his time of strife, and trust this effort will assist him in his time of need. Thanks for sharing your warm heart.
