Super Secret Project Has been Delivered!!

A few of you may have heard some talk of a Super Secret cross stitch project that some of us have been working on. Way back in June of 2009 I was talking to a good friend on the phone (Carrie) and we both decided that it would be fun to surprise another good friend of ours..Miss Donna. Donna has done so much to get cancer awareness out there to everyone and we felt she should be rewarded for all she's done. So we came up with this idea to make a quilt for her. After getting a few of our stitching friends on board with us this is what we came up with......

This little fairy/angel was my contribution to the quilt.....

Then after realizing we would need some 'spacer' type blocks between the "angels" we came up with this....cancer ribbons and hearts. So hubby and I drew them out on paper and made up some homemade templates....

In the meantime everyone was diligently stitching away on their squares. The center block was designed and stitched by Janet and it fit perfectly for the quilt. Great idea Janet! These are the squares all together in no particular order....

Now, fast forward to December 21, 2009 and this is what it turned into! We also have a matching pillow but I forgot to get it on here...oops!

This was a fun project to do and I think we may just have to do another one in the future! Miss Donna has now recieved the quilt and I hope she knows just how special we all think she is. Donna you've been an inspiration to all of us and we are all so blessed to call you friend.
Hugs to all!
