Design Wall Monday


This is for my Ali. I asked friends and family to contribute a square with their signature and well wishes so I could put them together in a quilt that she could wrap herself in and feel the love that everyone has for her.

This has been an emotional project. And she told me on Thursday - her 38th birthday - that the cancer has most likely spread to her ovaries. For the first time since she told me she has breast cancer, I'm scared. Really scared. 

I'm in the process of quilting this today and will get it to her in the next day or two. I've sashed it in white and will bind it in a pink floral. I'll post pics of the finished quilt soon.

This is your reminder, ladies. Check your ta-tas. Really get up in there and root around on a regular basis. Mkay?
