Around a month ago my Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. Immediately upon hearing the news I knew that I wanted to make a quilt for her. Grace and I spent the following day visiting the local quilt shops attempting to find a "line" of coordinating breast cancer fabric. Our efforts were a bit unsuccessful, as we could only find one bolt pink ribbon fabric. But then it occurred to me that my Aunt loves the color purple. So, I ended up piecing the front of the quilt of a variety of pink and purple prints and used the breast cancer fabric for the back.
My wish is that the quilt will bring my Aunt hope, strength and courage on the path that lies ahead of her.
