a few glimpses of this quilt in the making. It started as a quilt to contribute to 100 Quilts for Christmas but its purpose and intended recipient quickly shifted. (I donated a different quilt to my local children's hospital but, in the frenzy of dropping it off, failed to take a picture.) A close family friend has been fighting breast cancer this fall. Once I realized that I had cut enough strips to make a good-sized lap quilt rather than just a kid's quilt, I decided that it needed to go to someone I know, and hte Maer house would be its new destination. I returned to DC on Wednesday and stopped by to drop off the quilt on Thursday night, the day before her surgery. I like to think that a warm and cozy quilt is just the right thing to return to and recover under.
