First project of the New Year completed

Hello Folksies
I have just completed a smallish quilt for a friend's daughter.  She is undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of leukemia.  Little Heaven is 12 years old and since being diagnosed over Thanksgiving time, has been thrown into the battlefield.  Tomorrow she is scheduled to go to the hospital.  I quickly pieced together this coin style quilty and finished up the hand quilting Thursday night, the binding Friday night.  I will be carrying it over to their house hopefully this afternoon.


For the hand quilting, I drew circle all over and stitched them.  It was a lot of fun to do that.  Kinda wished I had done multi color floss but you know how my mind works.  I am happy with this quilt and expect the prayers said with each piece and stitch to bring a harvest of blessings for Heaven and her family.

Thanks Debra and Jill
I was able to get to Heaven's house this afternoon for a brief visit. I think she really liked the quilt. She is a very precious and shy young girl. Thanks for your prayers.

Such a comfort that will be to her! Oh, it breaks my heart for children to be so sick. I will be praying for her.

Dear Blondie, your heart is so big! The quilt is beautiful, and I hope it will help Heaven through this all. My heart breaks to hear about kids being so ill. My youngest son is 12 too.
