from: Sheryn Lockwood: “This quilt is being donated to Polly’s Run, it’s about 75″ x 94”, perfect for a queen bed. My description of the quilt:There are 97 different purple fabrics in the main design, no two are the same, just as no two people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will have the same life story to tell. Some fabrics are soft and subtle, some bold and bright, some are floral, goofy, gentle, ethereal, old fashioned, complex, sparkly, contemporary, strong, or just indescribable; some are long, some are very short; just like the lives of people with cancer. The strip of light fabric surrounding them represents the family members who surround them with love and support. The cornerstones are the doctors and medical staff who work on the periphery, but make a big impact. Notice the bright purple strip that runs all the way through the quilt, that is the work being done by cancer researchers, endeavoring to conquer all the “black” surrounding a cancer diagnosis, that is why the strip goes all the way through the design, even through the edge (binding). Support Polly’s Run and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, help make more long strips!”
