Ever since a few weeks ago, when I was teaching my niece Katee (10) more about sewing/quilting the thought keeps popping into my mind that Katee and I should work together on a quilt for her little sister, Rosemarie. Rosemarie is four years old, and she has been fighting cancer since she was just a year old. She's been through numerous rounds of chemo, radiation, several surgeries, a stem cell harvest, stem cell transplants, bone marrow transplants, an MIBG therapy, and now is in a stage one study. In this new study she's being seen at the children's hospital in Cincinnati Ohio, which is several hours from home.
Well, while I keep returning to the thought of making Rosemarie (Ro-ro as my daughter calls her) a quilt, I came across a group on flickr asking for help in a similar task, making a spirit lifting - cancer kicking quilt. :) I've seen the great response that Lucia from lulubloom has gotten from her flickr group, Trudy's Arse Kicking Quilt so I'm going to see what response I might get for some help in making the warmest sweetest, anti-cancer quilt eve.
Here is what kind of blocks I'm looking for:
- Size: 9" square (8.5" finished)
- Color: pinks and/or purples (girly)
- Style: either cross / plus (wonky, squared up, pieced, single, multiple)
- or square in square.
Here's the flickr group link. Please feel free to share this with anyone and everyone... and please say a prayer for Rosemarie!
Here's a link for more info on Rosemarie.
Feel free to email me/comment here if you'd like more info or my address to send to.
Thank you crafty blogger/flickr friends!
