You will see on my website a picture of my sweet Mom who died from breast cancer six years ago this May. I know that many of my quilter friends have experienced firsthand the challenge of breast cancer. I want to encourage you all to make a quilt, pillow or something fun that would encourage a special person in your life who is battling this disease. You could use your sewing talents to donate a quilt to use as a fund raiser for a friend who is raising money for the Susan G Komen 3-Day Cancer Walk.
You can also create a quilt for a Relay for Life fund raiser. Speaking of Relay for Life, I am donating all proceeds from the sale of the Sweet Cakes Cupcake products found on my website to Relay for Life from February through April 2011. Click the Sweet Cakes Icon to see the Sweet Cakes products.
