    A dear friend found out she has breast cancer. To cheer her, and to have something to keep her warm, I found some really cheery fabric that I bought long ago, and did a modified warm wishes pattern. Since her husband is feeling the strain, too, I made him his own quilt, with midnight cowboy fabric on the front, and majestic wings fabric for the back. Start to finish, it took less than one week to finish both of them.

    So nice of you to remember the caregiver too. At times of trouble, everyone could use the warm hug of their very own quilt. We never grow to old for a security blanket. Makes you feel pretty warm all over to have done this for them.
