    Klue do you only make for breast cancer awareness? My SIL passed away from cervical cancer last summer. I bought some lovely fabric in teals ....with the cancer awareness ribbons ect for cervical cancer awareness but I have been unable to bring myself to make the quilt. If this is something you would be interested in I would be happy to send it to you.

    i'm so sorry to hear about your sister - i understand completely that you've haven't been able to make a quilt.

    i kind of fell into the entire cancer quilt making thing. it started because i was going to support groups when my MIL and BIL both passed away.

    the word kind of spread thru all the support groups that i was a quilter and people started to ask me to make quilts for them or their loved ones.

    the most often requested is breast cancer but i have made some cervical quilts too.

    99.99% of the time i don't charge people for the quilt - i think in the last 6 years i've been paid a small fee on 2 quilts.

    i would be honored if you sent me the fabric but you might want to hold onto it for a little longer before you decide.

    the best thing i ever did to heal from the loss of my family was making these quilts.

    every day that i make the cancer quilts, the quilts for the battered woman's shelter, or the hospice care quilts - i feel like my loved ones live on - that i and the community still honor and value them.

    so maybe one day you can make a quilt and donate it to the hospital to ease anothers suffering.

    when i first started i cried often while making them but soon it passed and i was filled with nothing but loving memories.

    Klue - I just love the fabric with the ladies on it, I also have never seen that one before. I can't wait to see what you make with it.

    I'm sorry to hear about DH, you'll be in my prayers.

    My Mom and my SIL are both survivors.

    Klue: what beautiful fabric BlueChicken sent you and what a great thing you're doing. They say what goes around comes around so only good things can come your way.

    I understand about the job loss situation. It was a year in Nov that my DH lost his. He saw an opportunity and started his own business--but then they took away his unemployment compensation because he's "self-employed" even though there was a period of no income. Oh well, sorry to be long-winded but now his business is doing well and I'm sure with your DH's talents he'll find something even better than he had. (I just can't get used to him home 24/7--he used to spend 6-8 mos a year in China!!)
    Good luck-know that all the people on this QB are pulling for you guys.
    Peace-Jan
