In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Stitchin’ Heaven designed the Think Pink Gumball Quilt Kit to highlight the continuing fight against breast cancer. Our exclusive Think Pink Quilt Kit is a mosaic of beautiful pink batiks, hand selected by us here at Stitchin’ Heaven to mix perfectly in our exclusive Gumballs Pattern designed by our very own Deb Luttrell.
When asked about the Think Pink Gumball Quilt, Deb shared her inspiration story and how Breast Cancer has affected someone close to her.
"A few years back my dear cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were all devastated - well everyone but her that is. She was brave and engaged and courageous through the entire process. She would go to her treatments and make friends and encourage others. She learned how to "Fight like a girl" and she is now in remission but still is always there for others going through the ordeal - ready to give aid, or support, or just provide someone a shoulder to cry on.
In the beginning of her treatment, I made her a quilt so she would have cover while she was undergoing her chemotherapy. I knew the rooms were often cold and with her diminished immune system I wanted her to not get chilled. She has told me many times how much that gift of a quilt meant to her during those scary and difficult times. Not just because it kept her warm but because it came from the heart and she always felt covered in love." -Deb Luttrell
During the month of October, a contribution to Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be made for each “Think Pink” quilt kit purchased.
Full kit includes the pattern and all fabric for the blocks and binding. You will need 5 yards of backing fabric to complete the quilt.
The finished quilt measures 60" x 72".
We recommend: Leopard Print Rhubab or Bahama Hot Pink for the backing.
