I have a wonderful friend. A year ago, her husband was diagnosed with cancer, the curable kind. Shortly after that, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
This is one of the kindest people I have ever met. She and her husband made fighting cancer look easy. They almost managed to make it look like fun. After successful operations, multiple, and chemo, her husband died from complications related to the chemo.
I wanted her to have a quilt to get through her own chemo, but I am slower than I used to be and not so good at beating a deadline.
I finally finished it this week, and got it to her. She loves that I included a couple blocks with a Florida State Seminole (go ‘Noles!)
If this looks familiar, it is because I made a similar, larger quilt for her daughter when she became engaged to our son. It’s one of my favorite patterns, scrappy heart, but I added a border to this one.
