Quilt for Amber 2

The kindergarten, first- and second-grade classes at Hull Elementary School in Chandler presented a quilt made of more than 160 squares to Ben Fernandez during an assembly Tuesday morning. The quilt is for Fernandez's 7-year-old daughter, Amber, who has been out of school all-year -- she's currently at Phoenix Children's Hospital -- in a bout with acute myeloid leukemia. Development of the quilt -- featuring the students' artwork and assembled as a gift from Casa Grande-based Eagle Wings Quilting -- was organized by Keisha Banks and her daughter, Kiana, a classmate and friend of Amber.
