    First Time Posting Pictures of One of My Quilts ~ Breast Cancer Comfort Quilt

    A young Mom in a Bible Study group I attend is battling breast cancer, it is a particularily aggressive cancer. I've been told that Chemo can at times make the patient cold so I decided that I would make her a flannel lap quilt and matching tote to carry to treatments.

    It is all Breast Cancer awareness flannels, the pattern is Cathedral Windows or sometimes I guess called Pickle Dish. The batting was very light weight flannel. Made with the Circle Magic template. I really enjoy the Circle Magic template as there is no binding it a finished edge.

    I didn't like the way the petals appeared (at intersections) with the flannels so I took the scraps of fabric and made the Yo Yo's to cover those intersections. The tote is just a simple bag for her to carry the quilt to treatments.

    The label "What Cancer Cannot Do" was done by one of our members here, who does all my labels SewnSewer2.

    I presented her the quilt on Tuesday and I must admit when I read the label to her I got pretty choked up and the group of about 20 women were all pretty teary eyed too.

    Beautiful quilt and I love the label. I'm going to try to find out who the writer is. I'd like to use the poem on a quilt I'm making for a student who just found out he has stage 2 cancer. Thanks so much for sharing.

    That is just beautiful. It is a most thoughtful and loving gift and the label says it all. Bless you for this gift of love to one in need.

    Thank you for doing that for her, my Sister went through all the horrors of Breast Cancer a few years back and I made her a similar lap quilt, with a tote carry bag, and it helped her immensely. For those who care, as all quilters do, a lap quilt with Tote is so useful and comforting for all who go through this and other long and necessary hospital treatments. I, and a few friends, also make them for Renal patients as they get so cold when having their treatments.

    A nice quilt to feel content. Just what is needed during a stressful treatment.

    It's a lovely, touching gift. I like your idea of the yo yos. They bring a punch of color and fun to the quilt. Best wishes to the woman who received it.
