InstructionsI had just bought a Suzanne McNeill book called 10 minute Squares that I wanted to try when Nora asked me if I was able to make another quilt for her friend who was having surgery for cancer. It was the perfect timing for me to use up the rest of the material from her quilt and try something new.

Type of item: Functional
Flannel left overs from Nora's F*&^ Cancer Quilt. Bright, Vibrant colours & Goofy characters.
What was your inspiration?
I am currently on a strict "no fabric budget" so I am going through the fabrics I have. I decided to use up the left overs from Nora's blanket to make another F*&% cancer blanket and donate it to a local hospital. When I ran into Nora she told me a friend of hers was about to have surgery for cancer and asked me if I would make up another quilt like hers that she could buy. I told her that I was already working on one and that her friend could have it as a gift. Lots of tears later, there are now 2 very thankful women using warm, made with much love, blankies to give them comfort during some difficult times. I feel better knowing I have helped them, and I was still able to quilt without spending any money.
What are you most proud of?
Both recipients are so very gratefull for their blankies - I feel good knowing these are gifts to women who are in very difficult times.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I love flannel - if you haven't made a quilt with it yet, give it a try. Quilts are wonderful to snuggle under, just imagine one made with flannel - heaven!
