Breast Cancer Sucks

One of my sister's friends got diagnosed with breast cancer yesterday. So this morning I've been trying to work on another one of those lazy star quilts in pinks/whites and maybe creams if I run out of whites.
I made one for one of my friends a few months ago.

Lucky for me, I cut too many 3 1/2" squares for the corners and have been just cutting the 6 1/2" squares and sewing them on. Trimming the bonus hst for more of these blocks. Hopefully I'll never be making another one of these quilts but I'll have blocks if I need to.
In the meantime, make sure that you have had your yearly mamogram. Make a donation to the American Cancer Society. I'll be making one when I get paid in a few days. If you want to donate you can donate through Marge at Delaware Quilts through Relay for Life. Another cool thing about Marge's quest for Relay for Life, she has a mystery group on Yahoo. You can pay a few bucks ( I think it's $5 ) and do one mystery or you can join for a year ( I think it's $30) and do some more. Procedes go to Relay for Life. Very cool Marge bravo !!! I wanted to join that group too but always forget and then wham the kids need my money for other things....
Well back to making blocks. I'm hoping to have a completed quilt in a week.

How nice of you to make this quilt! Kim, many women don't realize that it is possible to get a free mamogram in some states if you don't have insurance or are underinsured. In Vermont it is called "Women First". It is so important to have the screening done in a timely basis.
