Healing Stitches

I am part of an awesome quilt group - there are six of us, each of us squeezing out time for our stitching, and becoming fast friends. We sometimes have friends joining our meets; one of our quilt-group groupies is Erika, a vibrant young 36 year old - she totally has the quilting spirit, but no sewing machine... yet!

We were shocked when Erika was diagnosed with ovarian cancer this summer. We got straight to work on making a quilt for her, to carry with her when she started chemo. The only rules for the group: make 12 1/2" blocks using pinks and greens, for happy energy!

We got to work, sewing our love, prayers and hope into each stitch.

May this lap quilt be a reminder that she is surrounded by people who love her.
