A World of Support for Charlotte: A Modern Around the World Quilt

My most recent quilt is now in the hands of a little girl who I've never met. Her name is Charlotte, and she is the niece of my dear friend, Misha. She also happens to be waging an incredibly brave battle against liver cancer that started when she was all of 15 months old. I've been following her story here and haven't been able to get her and her family off of my mind. So I made Charlotte a quilt to give her comfort during her treatments and a place to have a picnic when she's not.

I chose to do a modern take on the traditional around the world pattern (inspired by this quilt) to represent all of the support around the world for Charlotte and her family. I went with bright rainbow solids and a fun Japanese kitty print for the back.

Keep fighting, sweet Charlotte!
