    This is my first try and a day and night quilt. Please don't look too carefully at it. It is for a friend who has cancer, so it is the thought that counts.

    Well - I am no expert - but think you have done a wonderful job. And there is a lot of love there for your friend and it shows plainly.

    A dear friend made me a quilt when I had cancer. It is by far the sweetest gift I have been given as she is in her 80's and hand quilted it with hearts. She told me she bought all the fabrics thinking of me with each piece. Of course it is in pinks!

    I know your friend will be touched beyond words. God bless you for being such a caring and loving friend :thumbup: I hope she does well. Her quilt is gorgeous!!!

    Love it. This is the very 1st quilting book I bought. I am going to do one for my 3rd daughter in Red Black and White. Did you like doing this pattern?

    Yes, I did, however, it was my new paper piecing try, so I will like the next one better. I would recommend when you make your templates, marking them withe the right side up. I cut out two blocks of pieces before I figured out I had cut them out wrong side up.

    What a beautiful gift for your friend, she will love it! I really like your colours and the stripes are really effective, it looks complicated, you have done a fine job!

    I agree. I, too, am impressed with those mitered corners. Only the very good or very brave quilters do those. Good on you for doing such a wonderful thing. She is lucky to have you as a friend.
