    I made this quilt for my oldest sister who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June of this year, hopefully the name of the quilt will also bring her some good luck.
    It was a huge shock to our family when we were told that she has cancer, no one in our family has ever had cancer, mostly anyone that's passed away has had a heart attack, so it's not something we ever thought would happen, she started having treatments a couple of weeks ago, we are staying positive that she will get through this.

    The quilt is gorgeous. Your thoughtfulness in making it should cheer her. Joy and a positive attitude are great weapons to help her heal.

    Thanks ladies, I gave it to her a couple of days ago when I went to visit her, I think she liked it, and hopefully it she will enjoy it for many years to come.

    Praying for your sister. A note of encouragement... My darling daughter was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in February 2008. She has been on chemo treatments since 3/08 and her last PET scan done 6/28/11 showed no growth of the cancer. We are giving thanks to God our Father, all who continue to pray for her, and the wonderful doctors and staff who care for her.

    Best wishes to you and your family. I lost my sister in April to cancer. We also had never had it in our family. I too made my sister a quilt hoping it would bring her some comfort. I think it did. It's something we can do when we feel otherwise helpless to do anything.

    I agree with you. I see so much dimension with the colors. It looks almost 3D. Beautiful. I hope it brings good results.
