A Quilt for Sam

A lady I work with shared with me last week that her husband has cancer is getting ready to begin a 48-week treatment period. As she is telling me this I am thinking about some way to help her and her family through this process.

As we were finishing up our conversation, she told me that her husband wears a sock hat because he's cold all the time. I instantly knew what I was called to do!

I'm not a very good cook.
I don't like to clean house. Just ask my hubby!
But if this man is cold, I can make him a quilt.

These people are both Christians and I wanted to make a special label for the quilt. I added some scripture to offer hope and reassurance. Some pictures of the label.

You can see the quilting really well on the black on the backing. I did a square meander that overlaps randomly. I think this is a very masculine style of quilting.

The sun was out at my house today so I took advantage of the weather and snapped a few pictures of it on my front porch swing. His favorite color is green ... same as me! I had some green fabric to spare.


  1. Gorgeous quilt! I hope he feels stronger every time he wraps up in it!

  2. it turned out wonderful.

    {and i wanna come take pics of my quilts on your front porch.}

  3. what a wonderful gift. i really believe that quilts are a special way of tangibly sharing God's love!
