Is it purple enough?


A week or so ago, I heard through the grapevine, that the 15 year old daughter of a friend from college was having surgery to remove a tumor from the base of her brain. The surgery went well and they were able to remove most of the tumor. Yesterday they moved her to St. Jude's hospital in Memphis. Monday they will be finding out about the doctors' plans for chemo and radiation. The daughter's favorite color is purple - can you tell? I thought she needed a lovey. I bought the fabric on Wednesday and just finished putting the binding on. Not bad! I want to get it in the mail to her on Monday.

In the light purple strips I quilted words - love, faith, hope, believe, family and her name.

What a great quilt! I am sure that she will love it! And St Jude's is the place for her to be to get treatment and get better! The April Quilt Retreat that I am organizing with friends will benefit St Jude's.

It is a sweet quilt, and how sweet of you to make one for her. I wish her all the best.
