I've had this little lap quilt done for a week or so but just got the label sewn on last night. It's made from various pink ribbon fabrics in the disappearing nine patch pattern. (Thanks again Rachel Griffith!)
I made this for a patient at the office where I work who recently lost her husband and who has recurrent breast cancer. She's a dear, dear lady in her early 80's who reminds me of my own mom so making this was therapeutic as my mother passed away of a heart attack before having an opportunity to even begin her breast cancer treatment.
I know when I give this to Marie today we'll both cry but that's therapy too. I miss you mom. You'd have loved Benjamin ... I'll give him extra kisses for you.
