My daughter is a senior in high school but is also taking classes at our local community college. She has had the same prof for Comp I and Comp II. He told them about his two year old son, Eli, who has leukemia so I did what we do and made him a quilt! Eli has an older sister so I made her a pillow case. My daughter showed me pictures of the children enjoying their gifts. The prof said that Eli spread the quilt out on the floor and started to leave the room. They asked where he was going and he said, "To get a pillow!" He told them the quilt was "cozy." They have no idea where he heard that word! Emmy liked her pillow case, too. Just made my day!
Here is the quilt I made.
I think the quilt is beautiful!! I bet it will be a big comfort to him. What a lovely story. Prayers to him and his family!
great quilt! What a wonderful gesture from you, thanks for sharing.
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
How sweet. Wonderful fabrics and colors for a 2-year old!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
How wonderful of you to make him such an adorable quilt. You just know it will be special to him forever.
That was a very nice thing you did for Eli. The quilt is so bright & colorful & I know he will love it for years & years to come. It was so sweet that you thought of his sister also.
We live in the home of the free...because of the brave.
Very nice, I like it when the older sibling is thought about. Makes them feel special too. What a nice thing to do. Pat
That quilt is adorable. I hope he fares well with his illness. That was so nice of you and it makes YOU feel good too. Way to go!
How sweet. It was such a nice thing you did and the colors in that quilt couldn't be more perfect for a sick child - bright, cheerful and happy. I hope the little guy does well with his treatments.
beautiful quilt! Quilter's are the nicest people. So nice you could brighten the children's day.
Sometime we will have to meet. I live between springfield and enon, Ohio.
Life's perfect moments are so rare....stm...what a wonderful gesture of care on your part,you have put a loving bandage on an awful bump for these people....Love the quilt and all it says...
That was a wonderful thing to do. Nice work!
I love everything about this story (except the reason for the need of a comforting quilt) - first, that you made a quilt for him and a pillowcase for big sis, but also for his reaction.
What you did was wonderful! Sweet thoughts and actions! Isn't it great how one thing can make so many people happy? to you!
Wishing Eli well!

Awwww, bless his little heart I can understand his reasoning...that quilt screams out to be snuggled.
I bet he will snuggle in it at every chance he gets and how nice to include his sister with her gift. Thanks for posting the picture, a nice happy pattern and fabric.
stm1804 = awesomeness! I bet you truly touched his heart.
