swap block prayer quilt

I've been going through my stack of gray and lime green swap blocks. For several months I've been praying for a gal named Tammy who I have never met. Tammy has cancer. She is a friend of my friend Nancy, and any friend of Nancy's is a friend of mine. I have felt inspired to make Tammy a prayer quilt and decided that these bright cheerful blocks were just right for the job. I even straight line quilted it myself on my Janome. 

This morning I put the final stitches in the binding. I wanted to take some pictures of it before I take it to Nancy later. However, it's not really a pretty sunny day. You can see that I even pieced some leftover strips of gray prints for the side borders just for fun.
Hmm nice socks, Steve! Thanks for helping Mom. I pieced the back with some yardage of Denyse Schmidt fabric from Joanns that I've been hanging onto and some more swap blocks. 

 I hope it cheers her days and keeps her warm during her treatments.

I think that Tammy will love this quilt that you are giving her via Nancy. It's really nice and I'm sure that it will help bring her physical comfort and mental comfort, too.

I think that's wonderful and she will be comforted when needed.
