Cancer sucks quilt is almost complete!


Wow have I been busy! Busy with work, boys, and even 2 craft shows in the past 3 weeks. Finally things have been calming down. I finally acquired the remaining few pieces/blocks a couple weeks back so since then The Cancer Sucks quilt has been my #1 priority. I'm thrilled to say I'm almost done!
On another good note, I'm also happy to report that Sara got great news from Mimi earlier this week that the cancer is shrinking. Praise the Lord for news like that!
I'm hoping to get the quilt to Mimi in the next couple of days before her next scheduled Chemo appt. I've received such sweet notes behind these blocks going into the quilt that I've decided to put them in a little notebook for Mimi. I've also thought about adding some encouragement to this notebook. SO whether you know Mimi/Judy or not, but would like to contribute you can either email me here or you can even comment on this post & I'll add it to the book.
"Encouragement" being a quick note, scripture, prayer, etc. Get creative!
I can't wait to post final pictures of the quilt and notebook too!

I found your blog while looking for a tutorial on a doll quilt - yours is great. I LOVE your Plain Spoken quilt, (I think I messed up that name - sorry!), and your blog is great, along with the name - haha! Thanks for sharing the tutorial! I'll be back to visit again.

I just found your blog and the cancer sucks button caught my eye. I am a 2 1/2 yr survivor of breast cancer. Faith, Family and Friends gave me my strength,to survive this awful disease. My prayers and thoughts are with all of your
family.

God Bless

anytime Jodi! I'm always so thankful for others who share tutorials online- what a great help they are! Glad I could pass it on :)

@ Sharon- thank you, I know she will appreciate it! Yea for you! I think other survivors are the best encouragement to any woman battling cancer. What an awesome badge of honor it is to beat cancer!
