    I couldn't put the pics of the quilt with the doll clothes so I will try & put it on now. One of the gals at work found out she had breast cancer so I made this quilt & had all the girls sign a square with encouragements. I work in a school kitchen so that is why there are pics of veggies w/sayings under them. I am happy to say she only had to have a lumpectomy & will have to do radiation but no chemo so we're hoping everything will go good for her.

    What a pretty quilt and I love the veggies on it. Great idea. It is good to hear that your friend will be able to get through her treatment without going through chemo.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments. I actually decided on the Friday she found out when she was having surgery to go ahead & make the quilt. I had to do some fast running that weekend to get some of the squares signed because her surgery was scheduled for that Wed. However, it did get changed until that Friday so it did give me an extra day but I was bound & determined I would have it done before she went in & I made it!
