    Small comfort quilt

    A very good friend of my daughter was just diagnosed with breast cancer, will start her treatments soon...another mutual friend ask me if I would do a joint project for her...she pieced the cheerful top, mailed it to me...I added backing, knotted it and added the crazy purple binding... I was so happy to be included in this little project...and I got to deliver it since I live closest. Daughter and quilting friend live 350 miles away. The patient loved it, may take it with her comfort during treatment.

    what a nice comfort quilt
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a cheery and fun quilt and a great collaboration between the two of you. I'm sure it will be appreciated during her difficult treatment.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    These lovingly made quilts to comfort those we love in difficult times are especially meaningful to those who receive them. This one is so cheerful. I hope the outcome of this treatment will be positive.

    being wrapped in comfort is so detrimental to a patients recovery. Knowing you have friends from afar to perform such kind gestures just makes it all the more easier through this process. Like having their arms and your arms around her.

    This quilt has tons of positive, loving vibes! I'm sure it will be a tremendous comfort. I know when she wraps herself in it she will feel the care and love that went into making it. Wonderful work

    Always nice to have a comfort quilt because it was always so cold in the chemo room when I went with my sister.
