Comfort Quilt for Signe

When Alexis received the devastating news that a friend's daughter was about to undergo cancer treatments she immediately knew what she wanted to do... make a comfort quilt!  Two year old Signe had been diagnosed with brain cancer that had spread to her spine.  Signe was already scheduled to start treatments so Alexis wanted to get the quilt to her quickly.  Of course she reached out to her quilty peeps in the BMQG for help. 

Her only requirements: wonky, scrappy square blocks that finish to 9.5" in a variety of cheerful, girly colors.  Aimee, Alice, and Rebecca all responded and within a week she had enough blocks to make this beautiful quilt. 

Alexis sashed them in white and made this adorable backing. Rebecca made the binding and Linda generously donated time on her longarm  and helped Alexis to quilt and machine bind the quilt.  In no time at all this beautiful quilt was on it's way to Minnesota.

Her Dad reported "when Signe saw her quilt I pointed out some of the different features and she just grabbed it and rolled around in it with this smile."  All the thanks any of us ever needed!
