In this post, we shine our Craftsy Spotlight on (drumroll)... Jodie Camillo
Check out the Jodie gorgeous quilt project which Jodie calls: American Cancer Society Quilt.
The quilt was created with Daffodil Days by the American Cancer Society as her inspiration, and in hopes to, according to Jodie herself, "...raise some money for ACS and bring comfort to someone dealing with cancer."
While creating the quilt, Jodie found that each cancer has its own ribbon color, and created the following legend to go along with her quilt:
- Orange – Leukemia/Uterine/Endometrial Cancer
- Yellow –Bladder Cancer
- Green – Kidney Cancer
- Blue – Colon Cancer
- Periwinkle – Pancreatic/Esophageal/Stomach Cancer
- Brown – Colorectal Cancer
- Jade – Liver Cancer
- Sky Blue – Prostate Cancer
- Pink – Breast Cancer
- White – Bone /Lung Cancer
- Gray – Brain Cancer
- Black/White – Carcinoid Syndrome Cancer
- Gold – Childhood/Appendix Cancer
- Teal – Ovarian Cancer
- Hot Pink – Inflammatory Breast Cancer
- Pink/Blue – Male Breast Cancer
- Purple – Universal color for all cancers
When asked what advice she'd give to someone creating a similar project, Jodie suggests:
Do your research. I didn't know that a lot of cancer had colors and ribbons and that purple was the universal color representing cancer. Make sure to service your machine before and after all embroidery work.
The thing that Jodie is most proud of about the quilt is that, "a cancer survivor won the quilt and hopefully finds comfort with it."
Jodie, We think that you have a LOT to proud of here. The work that you've done is fantastic, and we're sure that the quilt has found a great new home! Thank you so much for sharing your story and your project with us!
