About a year ago I found out a friend of mine had breast cancer. She is doing fine today, but I cannot even fathom having to go through such an ordeal. I was at a loss for what to do for her, so I decided to fall back on my passion and make her a quilt. This is actually the first full blown quilt I have given away to someone outside my immediate family. I used lots of pink and the pattern is a wonky star pattern that was popular at the time. I ended up tying the quilt instead of actually “quilting” it as I was not confident in my ability to quilt it on my machine at the time, and I did not know about Long Arm Quilters then either. I hope that she enjoys it and that it may bring her even just a little comfort.
