    I posted this quilt while I was working on it. It is now finished and has been mailed off to my friend Pam. She is recovering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome and I thought she needed something bright to cheer her up. It is jewel tones that don't show as bright in pictures.

    Pam loves it - said it made her cry!

    I love the colors. The black really pulls the brighter colors out of the border. The back is really nice as well.

    I hope your friend is doing better...beautiful quilt! My SIL had the same thing 1 1/2 years ago and is still recovering. Doctors say she may alway walk with a limp, but she is walking. Still no feeling in her toes. Nasty disease...

    You are a wonderful friend! Such a beautiful quilt to lift her spirits will be a huge part of her recovery! As a nurse, I've seen how a positive attitude can make all the difference in the world.

    Thank you for all the kind comments! I'm sorry I posted the picture sideways. Careful of your neck!
    I had fun with this one deciding what to do. It is 6 inch blocks, except for the large friendship star. That was a happy accident. It would have been an orphan but I decided to throw it in. The cross is included to remind her of God's love and to honor her son and DH that have passed. She hopes to be able to return to work in July. She is on the mend!

    You did a wonderful job on the quilt.
    I just used that same paisley to border my Cathedral Window quilt. LOVE it!!
    I, too, have a friend with Guillian-Barre, and I did one for her not too long ago, and I named it Abby's Lilacs.
    I am a breast cancer survivor, and know that the support of friends can bring one through the darkest days.
    God bless you, and Pam, too.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I love the colors. They just pop with the darker background. I bet she is going to love it. I like the way you put her name in the quilt too. Great job and thanks for sharing.
