Quick quilt needed ...

We've all had them ... a need to pull together a quick quilt ...

This time ... it's for a high school friend that is waging a major battle with colon cancer ... he's been weak and fell and landed back in the hospital ... not where you want to be when you want to wage a major battle ...


I wanted something quick, masculine and vibrant ... I am pleased how the traditional patchwork filled all three requirements ...


I quilted the 6" blocks with the Orange Peel design from Jacquie Gering's quilting book Walk.  I followed the instructions in the book, but felt it left a little too much open space in the blocks, so I also quilted straight lines down the middle of the blocks, in both directions.  This shored it up a little and gave it a little more of the crinkle look I like ...


It's been too many years to mention since we were together in high school ... but I do hope that the quilt puts a smile on his face, at least for a few minutes as he opens it and knows that there are people out here who are truly rooting for him ...

Have a good weekend.

All the best,
Lisa

  1. I'm guessing your quilts gave him a great deal of comfort. I was gifted a small portable lap quilt when I was doing chemo. I gave me much comfort.

  3. Old-fashioned patchwork is always good, but the colors are wonderful. I think the extra line of quilting looks really good. I hope it soothes him.
