Thanks Prairiecraft and Relle. My mother just called me on the phone about her new lap quilt. She had a chemo treatment today and told me that all the nurses were ooohing and ahhhing over the quilt, asking her where she got it. She said that it was the perfect size and wasn't to heavy or too light, it was perfect and when she used it she felt cozy and warm. This is exactly what I wanted to hear...that it comforted her...so mission accomplished
BTW - she is doing amazingly well with the treatments...almost miraculously well. She is very close to remission which seemed virtually impossible when she began since she was diagnosed at stage 4! God has certainly answered prayers here!
