A quilt for Chad

I am making a quilt for a 9 year old boy who is in Westmead Children's Hospital and has had a long battle with a rare blood disorder. He has been seen recently on the Today Show and Sydney FC have also been inviting him to their games. He also likes the Wests Tigers so I am going with that theme. My family are Panthers please forgive me Panthers. I will share it's progress with you.

The pieces are all traced out and the cutting out and placement begins

Lots of little bits

placing all the pieces

all done

The borders are on and the main block is ready for blanket stitch

I love it! I think it looks fantastic.
I will need a really sharp needle to sew all the exposed edges with blanket stitch as there
are three layers of fabric in most of places.
I will work out the rest of the quilt as I go along.
