Diane's 2008 Retreat Quilt




Got this picture (see more pictures on my website, www.Quiltsbybarb.com) and I wanted to share her story with you.

This is what Diane wrote to me:

"Barb - I finished my quilt from the retreat but I won't have it to show at the next retreat since I gave it as a comfort quilt to a friend of my son.

His friend was diagnosed with a brain tumor (grade 3 - fast growing) in the last month. I made it so his friends and family could sign it in the light areas of the quilt and even the back when they visit him. As you can see the backing was made from left over fabric. I even made a cover/pillowcase for the quilt from leftover fabric. I quilted it on my domestic machine.


The label reads as follows:


Chris - This quilt is just like you...one of a kind!


Wrap this quilt around you and remember all of our thoughts and prayers are with you.


Diane Kettleson - Kirk's mom

Great job, Diane, and our prayers are with Chris. Aren't quilts the best!
