Night of Hope

Each year my mom volunteers for an event held locally called The Night of Hope. This event is a gala evening, with guest speakers, live auction and silent auction - all proceeds going to research for a cure for Breast Cancer. My mom lost her youngest sister to breast cancer, so the event has much meaning and hope for our family. This year, I decided to make a toddler size quilt with matching doll quilt to donate to the event. 

This particular log cabin block was a first for me -  and right up my alley. I love the repetitive sew, iron, trim, sew, iron, trim vibe that you get into. I find it very relaxing and satisfying. It was also a nice change to not have to think about seam matching - a nice switch from the usual.

I am very pleased to report that these quilts sold in the silent auction and are now happily in their new home. Hopefully being snuggled by a little and her dolly.

I am enjoying the sunshine here in BC. Hope you all are having a fabulous start to your week!
