A New Finished Quilt

A quick post to show you the finished quilt for my friend’s daughter who’s going through chemotherapy to fight a very aggressive breast cancer. 


It’s done and delivered yesterday.  I heard that patients often get cold during the treatment, I hope this quilt will keep her warm.

Now I have to get back to my other projects.


Keep calm and quilt on..... 



  1. This is lovely, and the colors are very soothing, Margo. I'm sure she will appreciate it and feel wrapped in love as well as warmth during her treatments.

  2. You are so thoughtful! I'm sure this quilt will bring her much comfort. Your diagonal quilting was a great choice! Thank you for linking to TGIFF!

  3. The soft colors and diagonal quilting are perfect for this pattern. It's a very thoughtful and comforting gift.

  4. A pretty finish and best wishes to your friend's daughter with her treatment.

  5. Your quilt will be a blessing, it really will. The quilt I was given continues to be my blessing, even 4 1/2 years later. She will love it.

  6. Such a beautiful calming quilt, Margo. I'm sure it will be a comfort during treatments. These quick, urgent quilts are such a heart-tug. On a different subject, I just read back about your exploration of basting. I'll be interested in your thoughts on machine quilting after thread basting. I pin quilt these days on a banquet table up on bed risers. For a larger quilt I use two tables set side by side. I have to monopolize our living room to do it, pushing chairs back and setting the tables over an ottoman, but it does save my back.


Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and will respond with an email.
