My Quilt Diet quilt for Anne...


This lady Marion, is my kind of lady! She has only been quilting since January and has 31 quilts finished!!! Are you kidding me! No, seriously. She started quilting to help her with her diet, to have a hobby to distract  her from food! Smart lady, addiction transfer, she has done it well! Marion blogs at my quilt diet, be sure to visit her. I wonder if she will pass 50 by the end of the year??? Good challenge? This pretty quilt is for her sisters friend Anne, who is going through chemo, so sad...

I am so happy to have made this quilt for my sister Aly's friend Anne who has end stage cancer :(


There is not much that can be done for her except to administer chemo every 3 weeks to give her a bit more time with her family.


Anne is 41.


Anne has 3 children.


Her oldest is 18 and her baby is 11.


This quilt is for Anne to take with her to chemo and to cuddle up with on the sofa after.






The following are the "post wash" pictures.


I LOVE how quilts look after they have been washed :)


The raw edge applique looks so cool :)


The quilt is heading off to Anne's Thursday afternoon with all of the love and comfort I can squeeze into it.

WOW 31 quilts in 8 months time! I haven't finished that many in 18 years. Now I have started more than that, but finishing them is another story. So sorry to hear about her friend, thoughts go out to her and her family.

Your quilt for Anne is wonderful! The fabrics are scraps? or many from 1 collection? How thoughtful of you to make it for her. I'll pray for Anne & her family & for her friends as you all are going through this stage in her life.Please pray for my daughter, Amy,(who is 39, with 2 kids)-and for me as we go Friday to the Doctor to hear of her biopsy results-lymphoma.Since I am a Christian I have a mighty God with me as I go.Hoping you are too!
