A Survivor Quilt for a Friend

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That my friend has the courage to face cancer head on and not let it take her. This quilt only has a few pieces of "pink ribbon" fabric because I didn't want it to be all about cancer. It needed to be more about life and hope and futures. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not a difficult piece so go for it. Just make sure you lay out the pieces to get proper placement and be sure to sew the rows so they line up properly. I sewed the blocks end to end and then put together the rows. The only difficulty in this piece is the work I did on the long arm. The actual freehand stitching is an easier design if you know how to work the long arm.

What you will need

  • All Cotton. Fabric on the top is by Kate Spain. The back is a fabric I picked up somewhere else but it matched perfectly and still carried theme.
