Today I received a beautiful note from a childhood friend. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She is the most loving, kind, and generous woman I have ever known. There is such a sweet bond between her and her family. We played together as youngsters, and when they left our neighborhood to live in Venezuela, our neighborhood got a lot quieter. I know they've made many moves since, but we were blessed to be able to reconnect in 2011 thru Facebook. On a recent trip "home" to Ohio we were able to meet and talk for several hours.

Since I am a quilter, and love making quilts, I decided to make her a quilt to help her thru her journey. I contacted her sister, Judy, to ask if Jody had a favorite color and was told it was yellow. I love yellow, it's such a happy color!
Below is a photo of the finished quilt that was delivered to her on November 20th.

I found this Quilt Stats idea on another blog, Busy Hands Quilts. I think it's a great idea. So many times I'll see something I would like to try and there is no information given!
