National Quilting Day, Dear Jane and Breast Cancer
Dear Jane G 4 Papa's Star
This has to be the hardest Dear Jane I have done so far. I was using colorful language while doing this one! It is appropriate that on National Quilting Day that I try something I had never done before. It proves to me how challenging quilting can be. It is an ART!! I believe we are artists. I might be copying a design or following a pattern, but I have been sewing since I was in elementry school many years ago and this block has to be one of the most challenging things I have done. I am still learning and evolving as an artist. Artists around the world should be proud of the impact their quilts have on generations to come. Happy National Quilting Day to all. This square makes number 18 and 211 pieces so far.
I wanted to take a minute to think about two special friends... Suzanne my neighbor and Dannette my co-worker. Both were diagnosed this week with breast cancer. I am keeping both of you in my prayers. You are both amazing women with wonderful families. Your strength amazes me. May God give you both peace! You will both be in my thoughts for the next coming months.
