Winter warmth for a friend!!

We had a winter block swap at MJF and all of us made extras so that we could make a quilt for a friend who is battling with cancer. The swap leader put them all together and sent it to me for quilting. I tried to make an original quilt design in each block. Then I did an allover pattern of loops and hearts. It was relaxing to work on this for the past two weekends since I was thinking about our friend the whole time.
I embroidered each girl's name using multicolored thread. (It looks great in person...sorry I am not much of a photographer yet!) I also included the recipient's name and the year of the quilt.


Some examples of the quilting. I hope she likes it!!

Shery-lyn,
You did a great job! Thank you so much. I am sure it will be much loved for a long long time. I have been busy and have had little time on the computer to read all thats been going on. Again I want to thank you for doing this. MJFGs are such a wonderful group of ladies!

Dear Sheryl-lyn,

This is the most amazing gift I have received! This quilt is just so beautiful, well made, lots of wonderful special extras like the embroidered names and indivual machine embroidered designs in each block. I can't thank you enough for taking so much time to make this up for me. I will treasure this quilt always and pass it down to my daughter or son. It is perfect for snuggling under in the recliner. I feel so blessed to be touched this way by all of you. Thank you so very much.
