    Hope Quilt

    A DF was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and has been given only a few months to live. But she is a fighter and we wanted to give her a quilt to think good thoughts but it had to be quick and simple to get it to her as soon as possible. She came here from Russia and loves peacocks so we found this beautiful material with a peacock and pieced together a simple quilt. Sonny our LAQ was good enough to switch it out with another quilt we had with him and did the quilting.

    She loved it and it brought tears to her eyes, so we know it was worth the time and effort put into it. She will continue to fight all the way.

    What a gorgeous quilt! I know it will make her feel better just looking at it and knowing the love behind it. Looks nice and cuddly too.

    What a beautiful quilt and what a group of beautiful ladies that put their hearts into making this for their friend! She will gather strength from the ones that surround her at this very troubling time in her life. Your friend is in my thoughts and prayers and a special blessing for those who surround her with love.

    OH it is stunning! May your friend's angels come and wrap their loving healing arms around her and guide her through this horrible time. You are a incredible person and even better friend to do this for her!

    To have a favourite image in such beautiful bold colours put into a quilt of love, would give any "warrior" strength. A most loving gift, from true friends. Thank you for sharing with us.

    The peacock fabric is absolutely gorgeous, as are the other fabrics which compliment this very nicely. I hope your friend finds the next months as pain-free as possible. I'll keep her in my thoughts.
