Each of our group has been touched by breast cancer. We've watched loved ones fight the disease - our mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, nieces and dear friends. We've supported their struggles, cheered their victories and mourned their losses. This quilt continues our support of the "Cause". It is an Amy Bradley Design pattern. Machine quilted by Eileen Mechling. Size: 49"x75".
I donated this quilt because I wanted it to go to a good cause. Not only does the buyer get to enjoy their quilt, but the money spent goes to help women with breast cancer. I really think that's a great reason to quilt. Size: 49"x58".
Over the past five years, two of my oldest friends and my mother were all diagnosed with breast cancer. All three were fortunate to receive excellent care. All are healthy today. Thank you to the researchers and health care professionals who do such vital work. Size: 72"x72".
Dedicated to Laurene Sinema, a great teacher and an ovarian cancer victim. Most fabrics used are from a fabric line designed by Laurene. Printed in McCall's Quilting Magazine February 2001. Machine quilted by Nubin Jensen. Size: 49"x69".
I bought his quilt in an unfinished stage. The quilt sandwich was together but the threads were not tied and trimmed. It needed squaring and I added the binding. I thought it was so beautiful, as did my Bee, and we thought perhaps the maker had died. Therefore, I named it "Desert String Mystery". Size: 55"x72".
"Star Sapphire" is dedicated to two of my friends, Edie and Sharon, who are currently battling cancer. Ironically, during the creation of this quilt, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but I'm now cancer free after a lumpectomy. Machine quilted by Julie House.
The inspiration for this quilt is a large round of petrified wood anywhere from 2 1/2 million to 200 million years old. Memories of loved ones live in our hearts forever. This quilt is given in memory of a young Texas woman who died in May 2012 of ovarian cancer. She was a loving friend of my younger son. Machine quilted by Karolyn Jensen. Size: 49"x58".
I dedicate this quilt to my friend Mary Rebarchak. Our paths have crossed numerous times since the late 70's during our husbands' military careers. Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and has remained cancer free. St. Kateri Tekakawitha was canonized in October 2012 and was the first Native American to reach sainthood. She was known as a miracle healer and I trust St. Kateri will look after Mary. Size: 41"x59".
Since our first auction in 2003 we have raised over $750,000 and donated 99% of proceeds to Tucson-area organizations in support of research, training, and assistance for uninsured and underinsured women.
