Kathi and I have been friends for over 35 years. She was diagnosed with Multiple Shas never diminished. I made this colorful lap quilt for her last year and she loves that it draws people to come over and talk to her.
My niece also has a long time friend, Rita, who has MS. As part of Team Momentum, Abby will walk with friends who have known Rita since High School.
Abby raises additional money by raffling a quilt that she and I make. This was last year's and we will be starting another very soon.
The T-shirts for the walkers and volunteers become the focus and create the theme. Tropical stamp fabric was perfect for the sashing and palm tree flannel became the backing. The hibiscus flower was scanned from the logo and enlarged. I used fusible web (see "Mon" entry) and machine applique to create this shadow effect.
