Ribbons of Love

I made this quilt for my sister. She has colon and liver cancer. The blue and yellow ribbons are both used for colon and liver cancer support. Also, my sister likes blue and yellow. I wanted to make her something to comfort her some while she is undergoing chemo and radiation. So, I made her this quilt. The green ribbon is to remind her of her "green eyed lil/big sis." The lil/big sis is a joke we have had for a long time. She is the oldest and she is only 5'2" and I am 5'10" though she is the big sis, she is the lil sis and even though I am the lil sis, I am the big sis. LOL!
I made this tote bag for my sister too, so that she can carry that quilt in it if she wants to while going back and forth for treatments or to just use for whatever. She lives in Hawaii so the fish go well. Also, I am a pisces so, maybe she can think of her lil sis again while using it.


  1. Beautiful quilt! Your sis is lucky to have such a caring sister.

  2. That is a beautiful quilt. I had never heard of the ribbon pattern. Might have to make one of those! I hope your sister recovers quickly. I know she will love her bag and quilt.
