Gilbert's Comfort Quilt


This is the 2nd quilt this year that I've made for a friend diagnosed with cancer. Gilbert lives in a very small mountain town in the middle of nowhere Montana. We lived there 12 years & Gilbert & his family became our family. He started Chemo last week & we just found out a few days ago, so I chose a quick & easy Rail Fence pattern in the colors of the mountains that surround his home. I got the top pieced this afternoon & I'll get it pin basted & machine quilted next week. I plan to back it with flannel & bind it in the darker brown color. We love you Gib...

Pretty quilt Teresa. I'm sure he will love it. It really does look like Montana.

A very comforting quilt Teresa. May your friend find himself surrounded by positive healing energy and that his recovery is complete. Quilts are a perfect gift for a friend who is facing health challenges. I am sure he will appreciate it and love it more than you know. It was a loving thoughtful thing for you to do.
Warmest regards,
Anna

I quilt by hand also. I have recently made a baby quilt for my newborn. Suprised to find other quilters out there...but there isn't much to do in winter in North Dakota.

You are a thoughtful person and giving a quilt is more than the quilt itself; more like the love.
