    My Sister's Quilt finally finished!

    Hi Everyone,
    I know this isn't a traditional kind of quilt, but I used my two favorite kinds of patterns, Dresden and Applique. I call this 80" square quilt "Luanne's TippyCat" for my youngest sister, 54, who is fighting for her life right now. She was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer last May. It came back again, and this time, it returned with a vengence.

    She has a Tuxedo cat that only loves her... not any other person on this planet can get within 4 feet of this feline, but that's a whole other story. My sister loves this cat and right now, what ever makes her happy, well, I love it too (even though I cannot pet the darn animal!).

    As always, I am lurking and looking at all the beautiful things you ladies and gents are creating and sharing with everyone. You all keep me inspired to be better and better. Thank you for looking at "Luanne's TippyCat". Please keep my sister in prayers for a good, peaceful journey home.

    Rebecca

    Sorry about your sister. Will keep her in my prayers. This adorable quilt is sure to lift her spirits. By the way, we must be practically neighbors; I'm in Florence.

    Praying also as I type. "A peaceful journey home" is exactly what I'm asking for. And your quilt is marvelous.

    Awe inspiring quilt. Love the theme and hope it comforts your sister as she travels onward. My best friend in all the world passed two years ago from cervical cancer. While she was going through chemo I made a quilt for her to use. She used it on her bed until the last day. I now have it on my bed and it reminds me of what a treasure a wonderful friend is. I never had a sister, but she was like a sister to me. My thoughts will be with you.

    Kitsy, Everyone has said the most wonderful things on this board and you have surely touched my heart. I hope to have this quilt back when she leaves. I will need it to hold me together because I just don't know if I can bear it without her.

    Very original, and one of a kind, just as your sister, and her cat are, I am sure. Blessings to your sister, you, and your family.
