Kristie's Quilt

Just before Christmas my blogging friend Kristie told us she had Grave's Disease and would be having radiation treatments. Another blogging friend Jen came up with the idea to make a comfort quilt for her. I knew I wanted to make a special block for Kristie's quilt, so I chose to make a hat from the same pattern she had recently made a quilt out of. I also included horse fabric because she loves horses and it's a common interest we share. I got my block sent off to Jen and she put the quilt together with the blocks of other blogger friends. She quilted it and put the label on and her mom Cindy did the binding. Then it was sent UPS to Kristie. We had the tracking number and delivery date and were just waiting for it to be delivered. Jen and I stalked her blog and the UPS tracking site trying to determine when it was delivered. Wednesday afternoon it arrived and she loved it! Here's a picture of the quilt and the label.

You guys did such a great job on the quilt! I'm sure she is going to always feel good when she is snuggled under it! What an awesome gift!

I am so thankful that I have friends like you!!! It's funny, I knew instantly who made the cowboy hat block when I saw it!!! Thank you so much.
