    I knew a high school girl who was diagnosed with breast cancer and very aggressive form. She needed a bathrobe and liked purple. Your quilt made me think of that as I had completely forgotten about making one for her. After two years of treatments, I tutored her and she finished high school, she is alive and well and the mother of two teenagers. That was about 30 years ago so will hope that the purple color does its trick again for your friend. Very kind of you.

    "Kool Aid"...... a perfect name for a perfect quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    It's really Kool! I think a cheerful quilt like that should be helpful for her to get through this rough period in her life. You are being a good friend.

    Your purple quilt is so terrific. Whenever she looks at it she will think of you. She has some hard struggles ahead of her and your kindness will be remembered and help her along difficult path.

    What a wonderful friend you are! I think you came up with a wonderful name "Cool Aide" aka Kool-Aid.

    Thanks, all!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
