A quilt for Tanner

First off I want to thank every single one of you. I know lots of you donated money to help my nephew and my sister was so grateful. She used the money for gas and paying some medical bills. Tanner has had a couple of surgeries on his face and that seems to be healing well. His leg was missing 4" of his femur bone (might be more) that they later found in the bumper of the car. His leg has been really difficult and many surgeries later he still has a shorter leg. He is having another surgery on his femur this holiday break and so I thought I should hurry and finish the quilt that I started awhile ago for him.

It is getting closer to winter and really cold season especially where Tanner lives and I hope the quilt will help keep him warm as he is recovering. His favorite color is green so I decided to just go all out and make the whole quilt green. I did a simple strip quilt since I thought that was manly. The quilt finished at 60" x 83" perfect size since he is six feet.

The back I used Kona Chartuese along with the nine patch blocks that I had first started to make for his quilt but then decided I didn't want to make his quilt with nine patches. Thanks to Christina for sending me 2 blocks that I used they were perfect!

I didn't get a close up of the binding but I used a Heather Bailey Nicey Jane dandy stripe that Barb sent me just for this quilt. Thanks again sooo much for that Barb! This is why I love the sewing community so much.

I mailed the quilt off yesterday and if I can get a picture of Tanner with it I will come back and add it to this post. Again thanks for all the love peeps! Hopefully I will be back to quilting and blogging here. I have more quilts to share.

What a great quilt!! I'm sure your nephew will love it! Glad his recovery is progressing too. The missing femur bit certainly is insane to try and comprehend. Eep!

It was such an awful accident to have happen, but i'm glad that he's doing okay. Better to be a little short in one leg, than not here at all. I hope all the future surgeries go well for him. Even just 4" in one leg can be really tough on a kid.

Oh my. It makes me sad all over again. That much missing from a leg is huge. This is a wonderful quilt and I'm so glad he'll have something be likes near him.
