Story behind the quilt.
I started this quilt shortly before being diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2012. It is one of the quilts that I worked on when I was able to; while going through surgeries, chemo then radiation. It was one of the easier ones to work on as it was so light and portable. Once all of the squares were embroidered it sat for awhile until I was able to do the cutting and piecing then the quilting. So from beginning to end I think it took me about 2 years. I still have to quilt the other 2 applique quilts that I was working on during this time as well.
