    I finally finished Ali's quilt. I had posted in February looking for help for the label to put on this quilt and was thrilled with the idea that Irishrose posted for the label. Originally I was thinking I could get this quilt done in under 2 weeks, but life interfered. I ended up having a kidney stone attack and surgery to remove the kidney stone. I also ended up piecing the back which added some time. Ali is 29 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer after finding a lump above her breast last summer. She did not seek treatment for the lump until sometime in February when the lump started growing larger. She underwent a radical mastectomy and is now undergoing chemotherapy and will have to have radiation treatments also. She teaches at the school where I work and is also mother to two young children. I had all of her students and coworkers sign squares to incorporate into the quilt.

    Beautiful quilt. I hope someone see's your post and is moved to get a mamogram or a lump checked out--so sad--there is so much preventive health care available, denial is understandable but it just delays treatment. (Can you tell I'm a nurse)

    It is loosely based on a D9P. I cut it up like that, but just put things back together based on spreading out the signed squares throughout the quilt.

    Very beautifully done! The star fabric in the photo gives it a shimmer effect, does it have metallics in it? It's wonderful when people pour their heart into a project for others. Wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing such a special quilt with us. It is very beautiful, not just the fabrics and design but the thought and love in every stitch. One could not help but recover when wrapped in this..all the best to your colleague.
