A Quilt of Hope

My husband and I got a phone call one day about 11am.  It was my sister-in-law saying that she was going to have to go back into the hospital and have another brain surgery.  This would have been her 2nd at this time.  Windy found out she had brain cancer in June 2015.  Around the same time we were being blessed with our 3rd grandson.  Funny how things like that happen.  Anyway, she has been fighting for her life since.  When we found out that she was going to have to go back in I had just enough time to make something for her and her family as long as we got it in the mail the next day.  I had to get on the stick!!!  I went through my “stash” and found a bunch of material that I was going to make curtains out of at one point when we were building our house in Pratt, Ks.  The curtain was to go in the girls’ half bath up stairs.  I guess I never got around to it.  Time to use it now.  I looked through my downloads and found “baby quilt”.  That is the only name it says.  A very simple easy design but I think it turned out ok.  I had enough to sew the quilt together, for the backing and actually had enough batting for quilting.  It was meant to be for me to make this for her.  I picked a label from a selection that I got at my first quilt show that I ever went to in February 2015.  Simply read To: The Wilson Family, Love: The Henrys  

She didn’t know it was coming but we told her husband.  He made sure he got the mail before they went on to the hospital.  She says she takes it to the hospital every time she goes now.  I hope it brings her luck, health, and happiness.
