    I just finished my sisters quilt and getting ready to mail it to my neice to give to her and take pictures, she found out a few months ago that she has a tumor in her right lung and is going through Chemo so I wanted to do something for her, I emailed a few groups I'm on (on yahoogroups) and asked for hearts of any size, re fitted them to measure 9 1/2" blocks and put them together, a few extra blocks came aftwards so I quickly made her a pillow to go with, here are some pictures

    That is such a neat idea- quilts are so special to give as gifts- but this make it so much more than "just a quilt"- what a beautiful thought! I know she will just love it! You have done such a nice job. We wish her well!
