Heather’s Cat Quilt and a good cause

My very good friend Heather, who I work with very closely for the MQG, is holding a fundraiser and I wanted to help to spread the word a bit.

The fundraiser is to raise money for LeyoMyoSarcoma research, a rare cancer (you can read about it here) that Heather was recently diagnosed with. Heather is a do-er and an incredibly strong person, so she’s tackled treatment head on and is now working to raise money for research for this cancer.

A group of us made Heather a quilt when we learned of her cancer. If you know her at all, you know she’s a huge fan of all things cat related. We instantly knew that a Cat Quilt was in order. But a MODERN Cat Quilt?? Eek. I’ll admit the challenge was scary to me! All I had to deliver was one block though so I dove in and came up with this:


And here is Heather with the quilt all finished up!


Elizabeth assembled the blocks in to the top and Angela added her beautiful quilting. It’s a fantastic quilt for an even more fantastic woman.

Can you spare a few dollars for her fundraiser? If so, please give!

    Heather was definitely thrilled when she received it in person! I was lucky enough to be at that party :)

    Will you be sharing the pattern / instructions for making your cat block? I would enjoy that very much. A beautiful quilt for a beautiful young woman. Great job by all.
    Thank you,
