Quilt 136 - Patriotic BQ-2

50 x 65

This is Mom's February contribution to the American Hero Quilt Project we've mentioned in several posts. She used Navy specific fabric in this one, alternated with flag fabric. Hope your class enjoyed it today, Mom.

Quilt 135 - Karen's Pink Flowered Flannel Quilt

45" x 65"

When I posted the quilt I had received from my Grandma (Quilt #130), I mentioned that it got too worn to use so my Mom made me a replacement quilt. This is it! I was going through a pink and gray phase, and we had purchased this satin finish fabric to use in my room. I had a valance, a bed skirt and this quilt out of the same fabric.

Mom used flannel on the back so it would be nice and cuddly. It originally had a wide eyelet ruffle around it, that we removed when I changed room styles...again. She even hand quilted it!

Quilt 134 - 9 Patch Heart Comfort Quilt

9 Patch Heart Comfort Quilt

This comfort quilt was made for me in 2005 by my niece, Karla. She presented it to me at our family reunion at Diamond Lake. My chemo sessions worked out that I was able to recoup for a week, then go to the reunion and was allowed to drive myself back home for the next treatment. I was so fortunate to be able to handle all the treatments so well. It is wonderful to look back and say still "All clear".

The back of this quilt is covered with well wishes from family and friends. Thanks again, Karla. As with all quilts that have been given to me, I love them. There are never too many quilts in a home.

Quilt 133 - Ione's Comfort Quilt from Thelma and Elsa


Another of my special comfort quilts to keep me warm while I had my chemo
treatments. Thelma and Elsa are friends I made through West Sound Quilters Guild.

It is a bright cheery quilt that still makes me smile when I look at it today.

Quilt 132 - Ione's Comfort Quilt from Judie

I just received another "all clear". It's hard to believe that 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. This is the comfort quilt I received from my friend, Judie. We sure have gone through alot in these last 4 years, Judie. Thanks again for this great quilt.
