    Finished the top....I don't know if I am more tired from working on it or from the emotional aspect of working on it for my friend and his wife.

    I'll do the back and tote bag tomorrow.

    difficult to tell but that is a pink with chocolate brown polka-dots

    Great job. Did you have a pattern you followed? Would love to make a quilt to donate to our local breast cancer center. It is always emotional to deal with breast cancer. My mom fought it for 37 years. this quilt will be a great comfort to your friend's wife.

    Diane - I used the very last pattern/image on this webpage: http://www.equilters.com/library/qui...-quilttop.html

    I did tube quilting triangles for all of it and just pieced together what I thought looked pretty. The hard part was matching up the squares - I didn't stack my cuts and then I knocked some off the table so it was like working a jigsaw puzzle.....the border I kind of made up because I was tired and didn't know what else to do.

    Well you did a great job and the message is definitely there and seen in your quilt. Thank you for the pattern info.

    That is so moving. My mother had breast cancer while I was pregnant with our son.
    I realised the other day that I have not made anything for her, you have inspired me.
    And, luckily, her eyesight is going, so she can't see the mistakes I make. Mum was an invisible mender and a dressmaker.

    A labor of love for sure. What a comfort this will be. They say chocolate is good for the soul. You did a fantastic job.

    Every time your friend uses the quilt, she will feel wrapped both literally and figuratively in the warmth of your love. You have a good heart.

    Hi
    I really like your quilt - I need to make a charity quilt for the Relay for Life in June - do you have a PDF or a document for this pattern? I check the above link and do not really see this pattern there. (I am new to quilting so I need instructions on how to do everything)
    Thanks
    NormaBeth
