Kurt came home last night with news that one of his good friends from work had some bad news about his wife's cancer. She has already been through a round of chemo and radiation and was given an 85% chance of full recovery. Unfortunately the treatment didn't work and the cancer has advanced. I offered to make a quilt (it's what I do) and had him look up the ribbon color for colon cancer. It is blue. Having a variety of blue projects to choose from, I pulled him in to the studio and we decided on one of my blue scrap patterns from the Rainbow Challenge. That one has obviously moved up on the priority list. I think I'll rearrange the order of projects for scrappy Saturday and finish the top off this weekend. The good news is that I used up ALL my 2.5 inch squares and had to go to the strips to cut some more. Step by step I'm taming the scraps.
