Every three weeks she has to go through chemo, which I hear is cold, so I am hoping this quilt can give her some warmth and comfort during those sessions.
When I asked about her style, I was told that she really likes pink. So pink it is. Pink fabric, pink thread, pink binding. I would have went searching for pink batting, too, if it would have been visible (thank goodness it isn't).
I added her name, smack in the middle of the quilt, with one row of stitching in black thread. I wasn't entirely sure it was going to show up, but after washing, for the crinkle factor, it turned out to be a nice touch, although understated.
I gave it to him this morning, so I hope this afternoon, when she unwraps it, it warms her heart.
I started out quilting this with straight lines, but as we all know, that takes time. So...I decided to quilt part of it with a meander stitch. It's true! The more you do, the easier it gets. I see more meandering in my future.
The back of this project was more pink, with a scrappy pink border, hand bound (my favorite part of making a quilt) by yours truly.
