    The quilt came out beautiful and I love the colors you chose. You did an excellent job considering everything you were up against. {{{hugs}}} for the man who lost his daughter way too young.

    Good job!

    Seems that we quilters have great expectations when it comes to making what I call an "emergency quilt" for someone who is in need of comfort. Three weeks before Christmas, just as I was exhaling from finally finishing a nine month project, I heard of a coworker in my daughter's office who was going to have to go to MD Anderson for experimental treatment. I knew right then that she needed a quilt from her coworkers to carry along with her. Well, what I had planned on being a 3-day project (not that I had ever done one in that short a time before) ended up being a three week project. I pillowcased it and tied it, praying with every knot. She went to Houston and I delivered it to the office the day before she returned. She did visit the office the following day and received her quilt. So she did received it for Christmas.Whew!

    Your quilt design is great. And I love the colors. I had done turquoise and browns. Your pattern is a lot more intricate. I had used the D9P. I find it the go to pattern for me when I am in a crunch. One day I will try your pattern.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I really like that pattern, have it bookmarked to make a quilt (someday), but I never would have been able to do it under pressure like you did!
