Hello all! This is a post about the quilt that I put together (along with some of the students and First Baptist Acadamy staff) for a little boy in my daughter's kindergarten class. His name is Stephen and he has received a very serious diagnosis from his doctors at such a tender age. My daughter also went to pre-k with Stephen so I know him and his mother well. So, while they were away from school getting his treatments we decided to make him a quilt with all of his friends hand prints so that he would feel like we were with him. I constructed this quilt fairly quickly because I wanted him to have it as soon as he could, so we decided not to do handprint animals but instead use colorful fabrics. (And since apparently Super Mario doesn't make fabric) we got fabric with right red and blue cars and traffic signals. It was quilted with fluffy high loft quilt batting, backed with plush blanket fabric (red) and has a wide satin blanket binding all around. I've included a slideshow of the quilt along with a shot if Stephen and my daughter receiving awards at school last week for being examples of the fruits of the spirit.
Please keep Stephen in your prayers as he continues to fight and to heal. There is a Facebook page dedicated to his progress. www.facebook.com/prayersforstephen so go like it!
It is also an important time to shower him with love and letters since they are a great encouragement and source of strength for him. Please take a moment to drop a card in the mail with some stickers, or just some kind words to this guy... because he certainly deserves them:

We love you Stephen!
I am always looking for new and unique projects to entertain myself (and my two children) as well as expand and diversify my portfolio and skills! Here is where I share what I have been doing and all of my "Pet Projects!" Thanks for stopping by!
