I just found out that a guy I used to work with was diagnosed with colon cancer. He's too young and healthy to have such problems but cancer isn't discriminating. So I went through my stack of finished quilts and found the perfect quilt to send him today. Just needed the binding put on (that's another one done!) His chemo starts this week so he will have the quilt to take along. This also made me very happy to be able to do something for someone in need.
This was from American Patchwork and Quilting a few years ago. It was designed by Kathie Holland. (thanks to Janet O. for reminding me of the designer's name) The blocks are 4.5" finished;
Max liked it right away!
On a more positive note, I finished the blocks for the Temecula 12 days of Christmas. Just need to set them. They are pretty tiny-- more the style of my friend Janet Olsen than my style.
Pictures from Paris are up next!
I'm sorry about your friend, Randy. I'm sure your quilt will bring him much comfort.ReplyDelete
I believe that lovely quilt you are giving your friend was a pattern by Kathie Holland--Quilting the Rails, or something like that. I have that magazine somewhere, waiting for me to make that quilt. A very thoughtful gift on your part, Randy!ReplyDelete
Love your tiny blocks. : ) I saved the patterns, but haven't made them. Are you going to use one of the three setting options they gave?
