Chad's Quilt ready to be delivered

In February I told you about Chad.
Just to remind you, he is a nine year old boy
who developed a rare blood disorder when he was four.( I think those facts are correct)
He has had quite a battle and my heart went out to him when I watched an article on him on Today.
Anyway, I thought what I could do for him was make him a quilt.
His aunt told me he liked the Tigers football team, so that became the theme.
IT'S FINISHED and his Aunty Trae will be taking it to him over easter.
Here are the final photos.

Stitch in the ditch around the Tiger to make it pop and
then I pebbled the block to make it really stand out.

It was quilted with a big stipple with orange bottom line thread
 I added Chad's name to personalise the quilt.
The backing is black fleecy to keep the quilt soft and cuddly. 
I hope Chad likes it and of course,
 I wish him the best of health for the future.


  1. Wow I love the pebbled quilting! Sending Chad lots of good health wishes.

  2. Thanks, I am really happy with the end result, and thanks for the msg to Chad.
