My daughter and I made this quilt for Abby, a young girl who has been fighting AML for a couple of years. This was my daughter's first experience with quilting, and she has found a love for it that I had at her age. The design is one that I had doodled one night, and my daughter helped with fabric choices and so on. We used Abby's favorite colors as a starting point and made it look like a garden full of life to inspire her to keep fighting to live. It was done in 100% cotton and was very heavily quilted (more than I would like) so that if Abby has to return to the hospital, she can take it along and it will survive washing in the industrial machines. Right now, Abby is great. A bone marrow transplant was successful and she is almost at full health. And her mom says her hair is growing back too! She is a real trooper and I am glad that this experience has taught my daughter that even strong people need love and support in difficult times.
