    Comfort quilt for a friend

    A fellow parishioner approached me on Easter Sunday and told me she was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. So many friends have been affected : ( So, when I got home I searched in my stack of "to be quilted" and found this lap quilt that I had made from 12 left over blocks and enough extra fabric to add a pieced border. I worked all week to sandwich, quilt and bind so I could give it to her the following Sunday. The label reads, "HOPE is being able to see that there is LIGHT despite all the darkness. Don't let the tall weeds cast a shadow on the flowers in your garden! From one cancer warrior to another." She was surprised and pleased and I pray it will keep her warm during chemo and surround her with love and support.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Love your quilt but most of all your heart. It's so good you had this pieced and top together already. May God bless you both

    Lovely quilt. I'm sure it will comfort her as she walks through the storm. It's great to have something nearly completed for those times when you hear the call.

    It's just perfect. Knowing people care and having their support will get her a long way in her healing process. Thanks for posting. I made my son a cancer survivor quilt this past winter to celebrate him being cancer free. His was HPV of the throat and at 54 he was diagnosed. Several other patients had the same cancer in their late 60s.

    Great quilt. Your friend knows she is loved!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    She will be wrapped in love every time she uses it. You do get cold during chemotherapy. Best of luck and prayers for her and family.

    Lovely quilt. I can envision it done up in children's prints for a Project Linus quilt. Would you happen to remember the name of the pattern/book? Any information would be helpful.
