I need help....please?

And maybe I finally got a picture to load from the iPad!? The help I'm hoping for is a size that chemo quilts are/should be? A close friend of my daughters was just diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She's only 46 and I'm still in shock at the news! I have some tops on hangers that might be the size needed. They will start chemo immediately to hopefully shrink the rumors somewhat before they do surgery. Thanks for your help,hugs for all my Blogger friends 'VBS'

So sorry to hear about your friend. I hope they caught it early and that she responds well to the chemo. I made a chemo quilt for my mom and tried to keep it small so that she could carry it with her easily to chemo. It was about 60 inches wide by 75 inches long. She thought it wasn't quite big enough and I made her another that was about 75 by 90. Any lap size quilt would be appropriate. It did have a nice soft flannel on the back which she appreciated as they keep the room quite cold. If you could make a little bag for carrying it would make it even more convenient for taking to chemotherapy.

Another option is Minkie fabric which the warmth and softness is greatly appreciated.

You're so very thoughtful to give a hug quilt to someone who very much needs one. I'm hoping with you that surgery goes well and she improves quickly. Please take care in those extreme temperatures you're getting.

What a sweet and loving thing to do for this woman. I agree with Scarphappy. The quilt should be big enough to go from chin to past the toes when she is in a reliner. I think 65 X 80 should be minimum.

I like to make quilts for hospital patients as well and do not usually make them 80"long. I think whatever size you make will be MUCH appreciated! sending warm thoughts your way!
