    This is one I just finished today for a little girl at my church who just had a bone marrow transplant. I don't know when I'll be able to give it to her because I think she has to stay in isolation for a while.

    It's from a pattern I found in a recent Fons & Porter magazine as a leaflet insert. Very easy. I kind of pooped out when it came to quilting the outer border, lol.

    Pam, that is really a sweet quilt! How very thoughtful of you. I hope this little girl can feel the love it was obviously made with.

    I'm going to find out when I can give it to her when I go to church tomorrow. I tried to make it as sturdy as possible because I figured it will be going through a lot of washings.

    Thanks for all the nice comments everyone. :-) I wanted it to be bright and cheerful, but not TOO bright.
