At the time, two of my co-workers had just been diagnosed with cancer, so I offered to make a couple of blocks. My friend Chris lost his battle with pancreatic cancer last January at the age of 46. My friend Jeannie, only 29, just celebrated one year since her last cancer treatment a couple of weeks ago. This disease sure hits close to home sometimes.
GMFG quilt "fences" and a bolt of Kona white that I bought for the Swoon quilt. Ironically, I won one of the door prizes at the very first meeting I attended of the Emerald Coast MQG, and it was 6 FQ solids! Isn't that just a bit of serendipity? Love it!
So, these blocks are for anyone who might be struggling with cancer, but this year, especially Devie and Renee, and the doctors who are treating them.
If you would like to make a block for Val's 2013 Heroes Quilt, visit Val's Pink Please blog or join the Flickr group. There's an easy tutorial and the blocks really are a lot of fun. Do it for someone you know that's fighting this ugly disease.
