Then I headed north to Mt. Pleasant to visit my friend Michelle who is recovering from her second mastectomy. One of the fun things about visiting a friend who is a quilter is being able to sleep under her quilts. This is a quilt that Michelle's Mom made and I took a close up shot so you could see all the gorgeous hand quilting. It was a well loved quilt and very soft and snuggly to sleep under.
And I wanted to show you this quilt that Michelle's friends just made for her to snuggle up with while she works through her surgeries and cancer treatments this year. It is a bright and happy lap quilt, and on the back of the quilt are appliqued hearts with hand written messages of love and inspiration from her friends.
And this is one of the main reasons I went to Michigan...not that I don't love my friend, but I am totally in love with her miracle baby! I was the Valentine's date babysitter and had a great time snuggling and playing with and reading to this perfect little person. Here is baby Laura sleeping with the quilt I made for her before she was born. (You can read about it here.)
