I shamelessly stole my friend's picture from Facebook. 
 This is my friend Bev and as I've said before, she has been diagnosed with cancer, specifically Metastatic Malignant Melanoma.  I'm still freaked out about the whole thing.  She isn't old enough to have cancer.  Not that there is a specific age you should be able to get cancer.  At the time she told us she hadn't retired yet.  Still actively working and doing all that crazy adult stuff you have to do.  It just keeps taking me back to you just never know.  You need to enjoy each and every moment.

 This is the quilt that I made and had everyone sign.  I was able to give it to her last week.  I don't know that I've ever gotten something quilted so quickly and binding on either.  Bev loves the quilt.  We love Bev and just wanted her to feel like all of her friends were there hugging her when she was going through treatments or a rough spell.

What a wonderful thing to do! When my daughter went through treatments quilts always made her feel loved and also kept her warm. I will say a prayer for your friend.
Also thanks for stopping by my blog. It is fun seeing new faces and meet more wonderful quilters!
