Choosing the backing was a struggle. I thought I had a piece of fabric with cheerleaders on it but I think I used it for pillowcases. There are very few novelty prints in my stash. There was a piece of fabric from The Quiltmaker’s Gift line that I had been saving for something special and . . what could be more special than this? The top ended up being 50″ wide so I cut the length for the backing fabric, split it down the middle and inserted a 12″ strip of the aqua border fabric, which will also be the binding fabric.
The little girl, Anna, had the brain tumor removed on Friday and I believe mom told me she will have to have radiation so I don’t know if they will go home for that or stay in Memphis but I’m just sending the quilt to my friend’s parents who will get it to Anna’s grandpa who will get it to Anna. Please continue to pray for this little girl and her family.
