I've been quite worried about him and have been praying for him. I've even asked his classmates to pray for him, especially on the day that Daniel had surgery. We've signed some large poster paper "cards" with lots of well-wishes. I wanted to do something else, though. Daniel is such a sweet young man--quiet and hard-working and stoic. He's handling his illness very well and has proven to me that 17 year olds can handle the toughest news with grace and strength.
So, wanting to do more, I asked the kids to bring in school tee shirts, but that really didn't go over very well. I gave up the tee shirt quilt idea and decided to make him a quilt using some of the many blues in my stash.
That's the quilt pictured here. I plan to deliver it in a few days, but first his classmates will have a chance to write well-wishes and sign it. Definitely I want to deliver it before the Thanksgiving holidays begin. I am sure that if he does have an additional therapy, it will begin soon and I'd like for him to have this quilt before that begins.

also some white so we can have more room for signatures.

Those little Maltese stinkers make it difficult to do anything on the floor.
