My quilty friend Limbania passed away from breast cancer recently. She was a sweet spirit who saw the good and light in everyone. I knew she was ill almost immediately after I met her at the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild. We made this Chemo Quilt for her back in 2013. Her cancer went away and came back. She always tried to attend our Quiltville Kickoff parties if she was in town and I have good memories of her helping me with my fabric selections when I was unsure. She had a great eye for color and was truly an artist. She leaves behind a nice husband and two young teen children. Her daughter plans to come to our kickoff party this year as she is wanting to continue the quilting tradition in her family.
Two weekends ago her husband had a sale of her sewing stuff. I bought the lot below.
It should be completed this weekend. As I have all the borders made. I had to add some of my own fabric for the final turquoise/aqua border as there was little fabric with the parts and so not enough of her fabric. There was also no eye break border (you see my floor here where it goes) so I made one from a light aqua fabric I had and decided I would rather use a sparkly white (like she has in the quilt) but I had trouble finding it online. I ordered one that may not work as it turns out--so if it does not, I may just use the white I had to buy to complete the borders. Looking forward to getting it made and hopefully quilted before the party!
