I think my all-time favorite use of my quilts is to give one to someone who is sick. Over the years, I've gifted many healing quilts to cancer patients who have almost all recovered! I lost one friend but feel that I helped save over a dozen others, some of whom I've never met.
So when my daughter told me yesterday that am she saw a photo of a high school friend undergoing chemotherapy with a rag of a blanket over her, I sprung into action.
I had made this last spring and I think it'll be perfect. She's got a couple of young kids who I figure will enjoy the doll fabric!!
So off I go to mail this and hopefully make someone's day when she gets it Friday!
Doesn't that feel great???
Oh how wonderful!! this is a lovely quilt and i am sure will comfort her friend....hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete

It's a wonderful gesture! My quilts are usually out the door as soon as they are finished to people in need of some extra comfort. She'll feel so blessed!ReplyDelete
A cuddly quilt is always good comfort, and the encouragement of getting it from you will lift her spirits too.ReplyDelete
