    I made this quilt for a dear friend that allows us to stay at her apartment when I need to go for check ups at a cancer hospital. She called me today to let me know she got it and she was so thrilled and surprised. I quilted it on a friends LA machine.

    Hanging in a window, I think it is too bright...oops

    The Book is called Coffee-Time Quilts By Cathy Wierzbicki
    The pattern is called Cappiccino Crossroads
    When I was this pattern I immediatly saw it in watercolors. I see lots of quilts in watercolor. They are my favorites! I did a watercolor bargello and love it too.
    Thanks so much for your kind words! :-D

    She is very special to both my DH and I. She reached out to us and continues to do so during what could be much more stressfull times. She is also a thyroid cancer survivor too :thumbup: So she is well aware of the road I am traveling. This quilt I made for her looks so much like the vista we have outside our window at her apartment. She was giggly and tickled when she was the quilt. I am so thrilled it is special to her.
    Thank you so much for such sweet words...hmmm I love the name you came up with"Blanket of Love" That is beautiful!
