October..Breast Cancer Awareness Month
This quilt was sent to me to longarm from Yellowknife from my customer Elizabeth. It is a beautiful quilt and has special meaning for her. The quilt is called a hokey pokey quilt -- her friend sent her the pattern. She decided to do it all in pinks for a friend and colleague of hers who is fighting breast cancer. She is in her late 30's with 3 young children. Elizabeth sent out cut out hearts so that people can write a message to her and she plans on hand appliqueing them onto the back of the quilt. She has raised thousands of dollars for breast cancer research and is presently participating in a study out of California since there is nothing else that can be offered her here in Canada. I quilted it in Angel Wings as it just seemed appropriate that someone needs to be watching over her during her difficult fight.
