    He will LOVE it - especially since you made it for him. Made one for my boss & gave to her just before her surgery, and the look on her face just made my heart sing, she was so thrilled. She's been using it ever since, recovering, and I'm so thankful I did it. You will be too! It's such a good feeling to do a kindness for others....

    Last night I laundered the quilt and delivered it this morning. My boss was touched and had tears in his eyes. He was so appreciative, it made me feel very humble because of what he has to deal with. So a few late nights was definitely worth it.
    Thanks, everyone for your kind words.

    I love quick quilts. They can really turn out to be your favourites. Ive designed quite a few myself and they're always a joy. Best Wishes.

    What a thoughtful thing for you to do. I'm sure the warmth from the quilt, and from your heart will help his therapy go much smoother. You will be blessed.

    Your quilt turned out super... I like the way you used the large blocks of fabric.. lends it a modern, masculine look...it inspires me to do something similar. Thanks!
