Happy Chemo Sew In

Yesterday was my second Happy Chemo Sew In. Here are the quilts that were finished as a result of our last sew in plus the two from Sharon. Makes a lovely stack, don't you think? And here are a few of the lovely ladies that made it possible. Marilyn and Mickey at the sewing machines. Shelly getting strips ready for another coin quilt.



Diane putting strips together for a rail fence quilt.


We were also able to tie the D9P. Considering it was made from my ugly fabric it made a pretty nice quilt. Hopefully it will make someone happy. With these the Happy Chemo Quiltometer is up to 13. Little by little we will reach the top. I'm linking up with Sarah for a little Whoop Whoop.

  1. You are going to make a lot of sick people feel warm and comfortable. I have been attending Chemo with my Dad for the past few months. The Huntsman cancer center has a basket of quilts they can use during treatment. It is the one speck of color in a sterile hospital setting. Your hard work is appreciated.

  2. Well if this isn't just perfect. It was just yesterday I was sharing with my friend about your efforts with this project. So proud to know you, Em. I bring you along with me wherever I go and when the opportunity arises, I love to share what a delighting person you are. Big hugs, *karendianne.

  8. Emily, I think this is wonderful that you are doing this. I am a cancer survivor and my friends made me a quilt when I was taking chemo. It made me feel loved and comforted me when I desperately needed it. You can't imagine how much these quilts are appreciated. Thank you for doing this and good luck with this.

  11. It looks like a fun time! Great looking stack of quilts.

    There's a saying about cutting fabric up into tiny enough pieces and no one will notice now ugly it is!

  13. I believe there is no such thing as ugly fabric, only interesting. Great inspiration! BTW - like the quiltometer.
