This quilt was made for a special young, and I mean YOUNG, lady with cancer. My friend asked me if I could make one and I knew I had to pull out my new "quick and go" Quake quilt pattern!
I'm embarrassed to say that the photo above is the only one I have of this quilt in "full".
I've forgotten to take "good" pictures before, but this one takes the cake!
I was actually a bit concerned about the prints from my stash I had curated from my charity bin of being juvenile for a young adult, but my friend approved it. I loved the butterflies for her Cancer Walk theme "Brittany's Butterflies" and the angels for everyone praying for her! The purple for the T-shirts they wore!
Again, I might gush, but I love how this pattern goes from Fat Quarters to strips in a blink of an eye and creates a stunning pattern. I was able to stitch it up quickly, but it got stuck in the queue for the longarm.
Luckily, I had picked up some new pantographs in that time period and this Bossa Nova was fun with some light yellow thread.
This was the only photo I could find of it complete! You can see the yellow binding and that's about it. It actually is a sweet soft butterfly print on yellow, second row from the top of the fabric pull above! As you can see, I had a lot of deadlines by the end of the summer and these were just the ones that were being mailed out!
All I know is that I hope she enjoys it. And I hope she knows that there are a lot of people praying or her to win the battle!!
