    Blue 4 patch for my friend who is having chemo treatments

    A friend from highschool have breast cancer and she is going throught chemo treatments. I offered to make a quilt for her and she asked for a "rustic" looking quilt in shade of blue, cream and grey. I'm more a modern quilter so asked members of this wonderful board for suggestions. I was looking for a quick and scrappy pattern and got a lot of great ideas. I finally settle for a 4 patch. My friend love it, and I'm so happy to send her warm and love (since she lives too far from me).

    Many times 4P such as yours look more like checkerboards. Your selection of various shades of lights and darks prevents this from happening. Great job!

    How pretty. She can even take it with her for chemo. We always get cold and need a blanket. She will be wrapped in your love. Good luck to her.

    I think I remember the thread asking for rustic ideas. I think you did good and I'm sure your friend appreciates it.

    Lovely project for a lovely reason.

    That quilt is so pretty & I know your friend will feel wrapped in love every time she uses it. Prayers for a full recovery from the cancer she is dealing with right now.

    I love your pretty quilt.... but isn't it a 9 patch?

    So sweet of you to make this for your friend.

    A wonderful way to send your friend warm hugs and love. I’m drawn to blues and love the creams and grays mixed in. I wish your friend the best.

    OMG, you are absolutely right, this is indeed a 9 patch! And I can't change my title... Well, this is the proof that I'm more a modern quilter. I can't tell the name of the classic right :-)

    Beautiful and thoughtful quilt from a dear friend. Surrounding yourself in hugs from the maker is a great way to feel warmth and comfort during chemo. Great job.

    It looks like such a "comfortable/comforting" quilt.
