Comfort for cancer

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hello All.
It was a busy month with a couple of 'Girls-Nites' organised by Curves Whangaparaoa to raise funds for Breast Cancer.
I made this quilt which is for sale on my website and 20% of the sale will go to this great cause.
The quilt will also go to a great cause. It would really suit any girl/woman who is fighting a battle. There is a CanTeen scarf in the centre and Pink Ribbon quilting for support.
The back of the quilt is Pink spotty Minky. This is a very 'strokable' soft plush fabric that will wrap a special person with love and cuddles.
This could be your special person.
I enjoyed making the quilt. It has a polyester inner, so is very machine washable.
I'm looking forward to donating to Breast Cancer and I really want the quilt to go to a good home.

  1. As an update on this story: the quilt didn't sell, and sat on the shelf here until March when another Hospice supporter discovered she had Breast cancer. The same lovely lady who donated the pink scarf that is the middle of this quilt. What better person to give the quilt to? So Karen has the quilt so she can wrap herself in love and care as she fights her battle. She's a great person and has such a wonderful outlook on life, I'm sure she will win the war. I was so pleased to give her this quilt.
