    Chemo Quilt

    Three weeks before her high school graduation, my great niece was diagnosed with brain cancer. My cousin and I made her a quilt in her favorite blue and purple embroidered with her beloved pigs..lol. She is still undergoing chemo but her last scans have been good and we are all hopeful. She loved the quilt...

    Very nice quilt. I like those colors together, too.

    Am I seeing a pocket at the top? That is a neat idea, if so.

    Yes at the top there is a flannel lined hand warmer and a small pocket for chap stick and hard candy.

    That is a wonderful quilt, and I love the thoughtfulness of the added features. Wishing her well ….

    So beautiful and thoughtful with the pocket. I love how everyone on here figures out how to do things like that. I need a pattern or I'm lost!!

    What a well thought out quilt. Love the hand warmer, candy, etc. I would not have thought of that.

    A group of friends made me a quilt when I was getting chemo. It went with me to every infusion over 24 weeks and kept me comfy and loved. I will treasure it always. I'm sure your niece has similar feelings.

    Beautiful and thoughtful quilt. I hope she has a swift recovery. This will keep her warm and comfy. The flying pigs are a great touch
