Music-Themed Quilt, Cancer, and Blog Hop

I'm overwhelmed by the number of people who have entered the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop & giveaway so far! I guess I hadn't really thought about how many entries I would end up with. And there are still a few days left to enter, so don't forget to enter! Click here to go to Quilting Gallery's list of participating blogs. 

I started to reply to everyone individually, but I didn't get very far. If you don't receive a personal reply right away, PLEASE don't take it personally! I'll be replying to a few each day.  I think I actually replied twice to 2 or 3 of you. Whoops! 

I have read every single one of them, and I'm amazed at the number of cancer survivors, or those that have been touched by cancer in some way. 

When I'm not reading your comments, I'm either working, sleeping, eating, or quilting. There's a special quilt I'm working on. One of our friends (one of my husband's best friends since high school--30+ years) has been diagnosed with Stage IV head and neck cancer (the same type of cancer that I had), and his friends in California are putting on a benefit at the end of September to include quite a line-up of bands as he's a local producer/director. I decided to sew a music-themed quilt to be raffled off at the benefit, so I need to spend as much time as I can sewing every single day....which I don't mind a bit!  Here's a sneak peek at the fabrics I'll be using. 
I'll be sure to post a pic of the quilt as soon as it's finished - I'm so excited about seeing this one complete! 


Thanks for stopping by Lisa Lisa and the Quilt Jam! I love to receive comments, and read each and every one of them!
