    Friendship Briad

    I made this quilt for my daughters friends daughter. She was recently diagnosed with cancer and I was hoping this would keep her warm during chemo. First time trying a braid and I think I did ok. Made my own bias tape and had a hard time making sure I stitched through the top and bottom pieces of the bias tape. Hope you like.

    I love your choice of colors. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated. My good thoughts go out to her.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It's great and she should appreciate it. I sent a small lap quilt to my neighbors dau. who is having Chemo. I made it all in pink but got to thinking, not everyone likes pink. I love your choice of colors.
