    Breast Cancer Quilt for my Boss

    I made this quilt for my boss who recently found out she has breast cancer. It's lap size so she will be able to take it when she goes for her treatments. Unfortunately I shipped it off to her before I took pictures of the back, which is a mini pink ribbon fabric. Hope it gives her comfort when she uses it.

    Thank you so much for making this for her. I know she will appreciate it. I just received one from an unknown kind and compassionate person after I recently had a lumpectomy. It is like getting a hug every time I wrapd it around myself. God bless you.

    How sweet! We know about 6 different folks with various types of cancer right now. It's a terrible thing! You've made someone feel special...and that makes you special.
