Mrs. K's Quilt

A few weeks ago, I alluded to the fact that I was working on a really special quilt. More special than any other quilt I have worked on.

I have known Mrs. K for many years. She and my mom have been friends since I was a toddler and have stayed friends for almost 30 years. That's a pretty long time.

For the past 9 years I have also been a member of the same congregation as Mrs. K. (Not my mom though.) I am pleased to call some of her daughters my friends. This past summer, Mrs. K was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy (is that spelled right?) and now is undergoing pretty harsh chemotherapy treatment.

When I found out that she would need this treatment I knew that she needed a quilt. A very special quilt. Something to keep her warm and keep her spirits up on the terrible days.

Mrs. K is a very blessed woman. She has a husband and 6 children who love her and care for her as well as numerous other family members and church family. She is so thankful for that support. Last Monday a few of us surprised her with a little morning 'party' and presented the quilt to her. She loved it. It was so worth it.

Wednesday I will post a little bit about how we organized the making of this message quilt. Just in case anyone else out there would like to bless someone in their lives with such a gift.

Have a good week!

Thanks to Heather for letting me steal her photos for this post.


  1. I bet it meant a lot to Mrs. K that you did this. The quilt is so beautiful. :)

  2. So thoughtful of you! Mrs. K is a lucky lady to have such wonderful friends! I'll add her to my prayers.

  3. i am trying to right now...i began a cancer quilt for a member of my homeschool group. i have the top done but now i am waiting on the squares with messages to come back to me. i have been having lots of second thoughts about the project. i want others to be part of it, not just me...i am not sure that many feel like they want to take part. i a m looking forward to how you managed the organization of all this!

  4. It is so beautiful Alisa! Now she can be wrapped in the love of friends and family and comforted with God's steadfast love.
    So very special!
