    Quilt for a friend starting chemo

    One of my good friends was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago with breast cancer. She has had one breast removed and started chemo last week. I just finished making her this quilt and will deliver it tomorrow. She is a real bookaholic, so I hope it pleases her.

    It is sort of a surprise, in that I didn't tell her I was making one, but I did email her yesterday that I had made her one. We agreed on a "delivery time" and I hope she likes it.

    Thanks for looking.

    Dina

    What a wonderful gift. Cancer treatments take so much out of a person and to have a wonderful and beautiful quilt to snuggle into is such a comfort. It is a lovely quilt and you are a very good friend. Best wishes for your friend.

    That is such a special thing to do for someone. It's bright and colorful and will always remind her of your thoughtfulness.

    She will love it. When I was having chemo, I was always cold. She will now be wrapped in love from her friend.

    I was in a Cancer Clinic 2 weeks ago and people having Chemo or anything else will love to have a quilt. They are always cold and it's always cold in the Clinic. People working in there work so hard, they need the coolness. You are doing a good thing to give her a quilt. She will use it.
