Deb got creative with the Moda Migration Panel and a pattern we have called Sidelight by Mountain Peek Creations. This is a great masculine quilt or for a cabin or camper. It is 46 x 62 and we have kits here offered with 3 different border selections

She tried sleeping in the bird feeder
But finally decided on a bowl in the store

The following press release will be in the Battle Creek news soon.
Quilt dedicated to a friend will be given to cancer survivor.
Carolyn Burke enjoyed quilt making. From colorful cut fabric, she created beautiful, intricate works of art admired by others. But she died recently of breast cancer.
As a memorial to her, the staff at Quilt N Go decided to create a special hand-made quilt and donate it to the American Cancer Society, which in turn, gave it to The Cancer Care Center at Battle Creek Health System.
Quilts are a true art form heirloom for the future, says Ruth Dean, owner of the local quilt store. For someone unfamiliar with quilt-making, it is difficult to fully appreciate all of the love and work that goes into sewing something like this. That’s why my staff joined me in making this quilt to honor our friend.
On October 16, the American Cancer Society and BCHS are sponsoring the Making Strides 5K walk at Bailey Park. To further honor Burke and those who continued her craft, one lucky cancer walker will receive this special quilt to commemorate their cancer survival. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk will kick off at 10. For more information, visit www.cancer.org.
American quilt making is certainly a colorful way to bring warmth to the hearth and heart like the one that The Cancer Care Center will be giving to one lucky cancer survivor on October 16.
