When a good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer recently, I knew I wanted to do something special to help her through the upcoming few months, so I made her a quilt. The inspiration came from the blog post where she announced her diagnosis. http://rocknrealty.net/blog/glitter-day/
Anyhow, here are a few pictures. It's a pretty regular stacked coins quilt, except that I used some of the backing in the stack, so it looks more like stacked bricks to me.
And here's a closeup of one brick so that you get a better idea of the fabrics. I took sequined dance fabrics and ironed them to fusible interfacing to stabilize them so I could get the appropriate sparkle and glitter into the quilt.
And last but not least, if you look very carefully at the quilting way down in the bottom right hand corner, there's a tiny heart just to remind her that she's very loved.
Thanks for looking. If you can send a few good thoughts to my friend, we'd both appreciate it!
