WiP Wednesday - Quilts for Cure - Abri's Quilt

It's WiP Wednesday and today I'm doing a little bit of quilting for Quilts for Cure.

About a week ago there was a Facebook update asking for a quilt for Abri, a little girl who was about to go Round 2 with Ewings Sarcoma

Fellow Twilter Amy had a quilt top that she wanted to share with Abri, and quickly got it in the mail to me. 

Sunday I pieced the back and basted the quilt, praying for Abri each step of the way. Then I realized there were puckers in the back because I hurried.

Monday I unpinned the basting and started over, taking my time. Don't you hate it when your mom was right? 

I channelled Christa while I stitched in the ditch and planned the quilting designs to complete this very special project, thinking of Abri's mom's plea that this was all a mistake.

Yesterday I got the best message from HollyAnne. We chatted about the quilt and agreed that it should still go to Abri to comfort her through surgery and while her leg heals. I don't even know this family, but cried tears of joy when I read her mom's post.

Then I got back to work and began FMQing in the blocks. I started with this orange peel design in the squares. This time my prayers were of thanksgiving, and also for everyone who didn't get this miracle. 

If you would like to help Quilts for Cure, let HollyAnne know

What are you working on?

  1. What an amazing story! I had tears in my eyes! I can tell, as a cancer survivor, that having the doctor tell it was a mistake is a dream come true. Go Abri!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
