The mission of the Petite Bijoux Project is to provide parent care packages for preemies at the Terrebonne General Medical Center NICU patients.

"A Star is Born", finishes at 36" X 45" and uses black and white Kona with a dark gray (3 1/2" blocks) to make a popular Buffalo Print.  The addition of the star symbolizes the tiny, but mighty, preemie.

Show and Tell, "Have Faith" from Baby Boomer Quilting Bee

Sharing a finish made by friend Darla Chauvin, who used my pattern, "Have Faith", for someone who was recently diagnosed with cancer.  The Have Faith pattern was  introduced earlier this year on "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" during the 2018 Hands to Help Challenge.

Darla's color palette was selected for a masculine version and is simply stunning.  Thank you Darla for sharing.

I also recently came across another "Have Faith" quilt posted at "Selina Quilts", who made the quilt for a WWII veteran.  Thank you Selina for sharing your finish.

Our quilt guild, Cane Cutters, recently selected the Ronald McDonald Home, with St. Jude's Children's Hospital as recipients of 80 quilts for Christmas 2017.  "Have Faith" was specifically  designed for charity quilts. This is my first finish....with hopes for a couple more.

A larger Pink and White version was made last month for a Breast Cancer Awareness Fund Raiser.  This turned out to be very simple pattern for a throw size.

Ladies Night Out - 2017 from Baby Boomer Quilting Bee

Once a year, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, Terrebonne General Medical Center, in Houma Louisiana hosts the "Ladies Night Out Gala", to raise funds and awareness.  This is the 5th year that I have donated a quilt representing breast cancer awareness.

For several years, I have been collecting "pink" fabric from every quilt shop that I visit, on-line shops and exchanges.  As a scrappy quilter, the larger the variety I can pull from, the happier I am with the outcome.

This year has touched my family directly, with my husband diagnosed with cancer and subsequently treated by Mary Bird Perkins ...
