    Healing Quilt

    A friend has had 5 years of stress. The last event took her to the hospital, ER at midnight. She's healing through morning and her own health. As part of her healing she is cleaning out her house and redecorating her bedroom. With her help choosing the colors and patterns, providing some stash and machine stitching the binding (I did the hand work, cutting, piecing, quilting and provided most of the fabric from my stash), we finished her healing quilt. She's planning to move a queen size bed into the room, so it's made queen size. In the picture it's on a king size bed. The binding wasn't on when pic taken. It's now completely finished with binding and a label.
    Can't find the book or I'd give the reference.

    The color palette is very restful. That should help with healing.
