The Bra Quilt and Many Blessings for Mary Lou... LIKE YOU
Well I have been through a real adventure since the beginning of the month. 😊 On the 7th of May I had 1/3 of my breast removed and a bunch of lymph nodes removed under my arm. Youch.
I had two groups of friends who gathered blocks together to make me two lovely and most comforting quilts.
Carol Heuter from Arizona sent the bra quilt to girls on My Yahoogroups friendship circle. Tami from Lemontreetales.com did the lovely quilting after Carol put it together. It is washed and comfy and comforting too!
The back is signature blocks- a lovely setting done by Carol
The borders are above and I love it. So very pretty and the cheddar is an amazing inner border.
Below is the quilt underneath it. That quilt was made for me by top Quilt teachers you all Know. They made the blocks and sent them to Kathy Kansier who put the quilt together. I have had it on my bed since Mark died last year. I cannot tell you what this has done for me.
Someone sent me this little Charlie Brown cartoon. It made me smile. Hope it gives you a smile too.
Here is a pillow that is not on my sofa and was a lovely gift. It has received so many compliments. 😊
