One of my co-workers has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I used the siggy block (like our exchange blocks) and had staff sign them. I put together a lap size quilt for her to take to her chemo sessions.
Total time on this project: Thursday & Friday for signatures at school. Saturday & Sunday (with time off during a 3 hour power outage) for making the top. Quilted and binding on Monday. Presented to Deb on Tuesday. 5 days total.
She happens to love the color purple-the ribbon color for pancreatic cancer-and she loves her quilt. She also collects bears-so I added a few. The rest of the fabrics are all out of my stash.
