Breast Cancer Quilt

Have you heard about the “Forget-Me-Not” quilt?  It’s been touring some of the quilt shows and if you happened to be in Long Beach this past weekend you may have seen it.

It’s the brain child of Meg Hawkey from Crabapple Hill Studio, and it comes from the hearts of 25 designers.  Front of quilt 2

It’s a quilt filled with stories, hope, love and prayers.  Wouldn’t you love to own this quilt?  Just look at the back of the quilt!  Meg designed the signature blocks for the back of quilt, we all signed our names, and she pieced together a quilt back as wonderful as the quilt front!

You can buy a raffle ticket to win this beautiful quilt!  It’s a one of a kind quilt and all the proceeds go to the Susan G Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer.  Visit the Susan G Komen web site to buy a raffle ticket and view a close-up of each block.  It will be the best $10 you ever spent and you could end up owning this beautiful quilt.

Most of us have been touched by Breast Cancer at some point in our lives.  I lost my mother and my sister to breast cancer and every stitch in my block is  honoring them.

Bunny Hill Block

Here’s a close-up of my block.  The bunny in the basket is “me” and I’m holding two hearts (mother and sister).  The tag says “Imagine”…

Someday it will be more than just imagine.   It will be a world without breast cancer and you can help!

Get out that credit card and enter!  Do it today so you don’t forget.  The drawing will be held December 1st.  Click here!

Have a great Monday everyone!

Hugs,

  • Kim - Words can barely express the beauty encompassed in this quilt. Wow! I'm speechless. My mother and my sister-in-law both died from breast cancer. My mom also had to endure bone cancer I was so blessed by going through this experience growing up with my mother's illness. She had such a passion for life and counseled so many other breast cancer patients. She was a nurse and loved her profession. I miss her. She's been gone since 1992. She is part of me!

    Thanks for sharing this quilt with all of us. You/They ought to make gift cards and photos of this quilt to sell to those that aren't the winner of this marvelous quilt.

    There will only be one winner and a lot of people who will want a part of it. I'd love a picture to hand on my wall to remember the thoughts and feelings that went into making this quilt. It's so meaningful. Thanks again!!! I LOVE IT!!ReplyCancel
