A few years ago, a good friend of mine was diagnosed with lung cancer. I had heard of quilts that you make with pockets that could be filled with cards, good wishes, prayers, little gifts that the cancer victim could take with them to the hospital when undergoing treatments. They could use it to cover up with as well as read the messages during their treatment.
So I contacted her family and friends to get cards and messages to fill the pockets and started making the quilt. She loves crazy quilts and batiks, so I made pockets of all types using scraps of batiks and trimmed them with decorative trims. It got pretty crazy all right! When finished and filled it was sort of heavy and cumbersome, but filled with love. She loved it!!! I hope it helped her feel the support and love of her family and friends during her long ordeal of radiation and chemo. She is a cancer survivor!
