Quilts 4 Cancer

This quilt came from the laundry ready to be loved! My kids have understood, that this quilt is for someone who is sick, but at the same time they love it too. Emmalie sat next to me on the couch last night as I finished the binding, pointing out all the different monkeys, and what they are doing, or the expression on their face. Already telling the story of the quilt! It is a fun quilt with lots of stories to be woven. To quilt it I did straight lines. However, I wanted the quilting to be unique. I started with diagonals through the squares, then went back and added a cross or plus sign at the major intersections. They are hard to see from the front – here’s the view from the … Read More »


Legacy

Posted on September 12th, by Amy in Me, Quilts 4 Cancer. 7 comments

The question has been asked, and it is very poignant this week. “What do you want your legacy to be?” For me it is simple, I want to live in relationship with those around me, and online, in a way that is meaningful and full of love. I would like to be in deep with people, trusted, and able to trust. Considering where our family has been this year – trust, is a hurdle right now :) Any way, everything else flows together if my relationships are good.Working on this quilt took on new meaning this week.

I could have posted a thankful post a couple other times, but couldn’t get myself to the computer long enough to post. :) But having it on my mind that I need to be thankful has been a huge blessing to me, in the midst of my stress. Oh! And I did manage to loose 1.5 lbs this week too! I have a tendency to run into the kitchen when I get emotional – so that’s huge!

Another Project

Posted on August 12th, by Amy in Quilts 4 Cancer. 4 comments

I was recently searching for local shops online and found Elaine’s Quilt Block. While on their site I discovered quilt kits for cancer patients. I managed to get to Salt Lake and pick one up! It is complete with pattern and backing fabric – should be no trouble at all :) And it is Funky Monkey fabric! Really cute – needless to say I am excited to work on this project :)
