    What a wonderful thing for you to do. That quilt is so "sunshiney". (is there such a word? If not, there is now!)

    Only 8 days! It takes me longer than that to decide on the colors I want to use. It is a beautiful labor of love and kindness.

    That was a really nice thing to do. Our quilt club made a quilt when one of our members was going through chemo for breast cancer. She cried when we gave it to her and she said she used it every time.

    i really did not have a choice. I think the Lord wanted me to do this. i would wake up in the night with this on my mind. Ikept saying " no i have other quilts to do first" actually 4 that are waiting to be quilted, but this just would not go away. So i said ok i'll do it and you know it went together without anything going wrong. I was very happy with it and her hubby said she took it with her to chemo

    A beautiful quilt for a very special lady. I'm sure she really loves this quilt as she is going through a very difficult time in her life. When my neighbor had to do her treatments, I would drive her to the hospital for them so her husband could continue to work. I know she will appreciate her very special quilt.

    my aunt made me a fleece blanket when i was going through breast cancer treatment it makes a big difference when you are going though that knowing someone cared enough to make you something to keep you as comfortable as possible

    This will be so comforting and pleasant for her to look at during the treatment sessions! I'm sure it will remind her of how loved she is!
