Description

I'm making a quick quilt for a friend of mine who just received some bad news - definitely a situation where she needs a quilt. I'm doing my best to finish it this weekend/this week. The top is done, and I'm working on some applique letters for the back with the word "Strength" (I took that idea from +Rebecca). I picked up half a yard of the Alphabet print from the new PB&J line from Moda and cut the letters from that. I'm using Wonder-Under to fuse them to the back then I think I'll stitch around the outside of each one. 

This is the design and basic colors - I'm using the Giant Star Quilt tutorial from Jeni at In Color Order.

Getting this star quilt will surely give her a big hug. Hope you get it finished soon and in the mail.

So sorry for your friend's rough time but what a loving and lovely way to offer support. I have to say knowing how to quilt at times like this is such a comfort both for the person who receives the created item and for those of us creating them as, in my opinion, it helps us both!

Thank you so much everyone! I hope she does like it and that it brings her some comfort. I work with her, so I really want to give it to her before she has to leave work for a while. I know the basting will take the longest - the top and back are both finished!
