A PINK Quilt with Island Batik!

Thursday, October 20, 2022

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, also called Pinktober. I've had two friends diagnosed with breast cancer this year, so it feels a little more personal than in years past.

I've teamed up with several other bloggers to make quilts with breast cancer awareness fabrics from Island Batik. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post and check out what they made!

A PINK Quilt with JOANN

Friday, October 7, 2022

Breast cancer statistics always feel so...unrelatable. Until this year. Two of my friends are among the nearly 300,000 women that will be diagnosed in the US this year. They have faced their battles with dignity, bravery, and strength. As a quilter, I feel compelled to encourage them on their journey by making quilts!

I've partnered with JOANN to make an all PINK quilt!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and you can make a donation at the register at your local JOANN store through October 29th to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation and their efforts to make an impact on research, health, and advocacy.
