A Comfort Quilt

My SIL has ovarian cancer.  Her prognosis is good, but she is going through chemo and radiation.  Most people talk about being so cold whenever this happens so I try to make a take-along quilt for them to use as a hug and for warmth.  Teal/aqua is the color of the ovarian cancer ribbon.  This one contains lots of the same fabrics I used for my MIL's quilt and hope that will bring a little extra comfort to my SIL.  I am going to loosely quilt it using a high loft batting.  That will keep it lightweight yet provide warmth.  My goal is to finish the binding by the end of the week.  I will post a pix when it is done.
