Comfort Quilt for a dear friend!

A member of our ArtCGirlz group, and very dear friend of mine, is about to enter chemo treatments this week.  Our ArtCGirlz did a card shower for her one week - each of us (10 members) send a card a day for 5 days in late January.   Yesterday we presented her with a quilt our group made for her to use during her treatments.

Made from all batiks - her favorites are the color purple and butterflies.   (Yes, we often joke we are twins).  Each of us made a block - some made 2.   None of us knew what pattern or color block the others were making - yet look how balanced this quilt is.   One girl sewed them all together, another basted, I did the quilting and another put on the binding.   I quilted the name of each member into the block(s) they made.   I so enjoyed quilting this - I felt I definitely became a part of it and it a part of me.

This is a block I made that we didn't need, so it became the label.   I "googled" caring hands image and found this graphic.   One of the girls ,machine embroidered all of our names onto the label.  With caring hands - she will soar to new heights!    The love and energy in this group was so apparent yesterday - despite the sadness we all feel, it was a very positive day!


  1. Thank you for posting the photo of the quilt and the label. I, too, am proud to be counted among this group of caring women.

  2. Nothing more wonderful than a fabric hug!
