Daughter’s Love {Pattern Release}

This pattern, “Daughter’s Love” is now in my Payhip and Craftsy shop. The pattern includes this size 70 x 70″,  a proposed color layout, and also provides suggestions for 60 x 60″ (small lap-sized quilt), 40 x 50″ (Baby Quilt), 20 x 20″ (mini quilt or pillow). img_6747

This pattern is so special to me and is a chance to give back. All proceeds for this quilt, over the next month, will be given to the Cancer Society New Zealand, who provides accommodation and support for New Zealander’s during treatments (all fees will be covered by myself). If funds are sufficient, I will also donate money to another cancer society based in the US.

Background

To give everyone some background, this quilt was created as a gift to my Mum. To give her comfort during chemotherapy, when I could not be there. She is battling against a brain tumor which has now been upgraded to Stage 4. In the past week, she has been re-cooperating at home from a 7.5 hr surgery to try to remove what they could of the tumor.

I did get the chance to spend this week with her in New Zealand, supporting her and my Dad. And guess what, my quilt was in use which is so fantastic to see – gave me warm fuzzies and put a smile on my face.

Anyway, I hope you will help me give back and support those who support others that are going through an incredible hardship and journey. OOXX

    I am certain your Mum’s spirit is lifted every time she sees a part of you in that quilt. The cheery color was perfect. I wish no suffering to anyone. May she lick her illness into remission!

    Michelle,

    The pattern is beautiful and a loving gift to your mother. A few years ago I sat with my Mom during her chemotherapy treatments. We spent the time watching movies while I worked on a quilt for her to use. So I really understand the feelings you put into yours. I’m sure she feels all the love and comfort you have for her.

    You and your family are in my prayers.

    Hugs, Janet Goss
