Ladies Night Out - 2017

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.  When I started this in 2013, I never dreamed this would happen....which has made me more determined to submit the quilts annually.

"Have Faith" is the modern pattern above representing 2017.  Below are the previous years that quilts were donated.
