It has been decided to bring forward the making of Pat’s blocks and quilt. She was originally due to receive them in May, but after hearing the news that she is now very poorly with ovarian cancer, we all agreed it would be a great idea to see if we could try to get her quilt finished and sent to her as soon as possible. We’ve pulled out all the stops and the blocks are all on their way to Sue who has agreed to sew them together. Her son is very kindly going to do the quilting for us.
Here are the blocks I made at lightening speed.
Kate collected all of the photos of everyone’s blocks and sent them to me so I could put them into a virtual quilt which means Pat can at least see the quilt we are planning for her. Kate decided on the placement of the blocks and I think she did a fabulous job. I understand Sue has moved a couple of them around because she can see what they look like in real life and that can make a difference. Now, it’s down to the postal services around the world as well as Sue and her son to work their magic and make this quilt a reality.
I’m sure Pat will love her quilt and I know she wants to spread the word about the symptoms of ovarian cancer so that others may take early action if necessary. Please visit Pat’s blog and the Ovarian Cancer quilt Project’s Facebook page to find out more.
