Addison's Quilt, Finished

In April I blogged about a group of us, Hope Quilters, making a quilt for Addison. She's a 2-1/2 year-old who's been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

To show their support and give Addison something to wrap up in during her hospital stays, family and friends donated fabrics that we used to assembly this 44" X 49" Attic Windows quilt, using this free pattern. To make the quilt larger, we simply added more rows/columns of 4" window blocks.
Isn't it a cute girly-girl quilt?

We hope the large variety of novelty prints will give Addison lots of hours of looking and chatter that will distract her from her illness and treatment.

Some of Addison's friends made blocks that we used to sew the quilt back.

Together, we're praying that Addison "will gain new strength."
