For Pinks Sakes Blog Hop
Thanks for stopping by my blog for the For Pinks Sakes Blog Hop. I am hosting this blog hop for several courageous women who have fought the good fight against breast cancer. My Oma Fini (paternal grandmother), Doris (my maternal grandmother's upstairs neighbor/renter, whose son I grew up with), Ellen (my husband's aunt), and of course, Tina (my mother-in-law). Tina is a wonderful woman, who has stayed upbeat and positive throughout her battle, but the medical bills from several surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy treatments have left her and her husband with a huge amount of medical bills and have put a major damper on her spirits and her joy at being cancer free after two years. It would be amazing, if you'd consider contributing towards those medical bills. There is a link here or on the right side of my blog.

The amazing ladies who have graciously agreed to participate in this blog hop will be making a pink block and sending it to me to make into a quilt to donate to the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion in Grand Rapids, MI where my mother-in-law has had all of her cancer treatments. You are welcome to join in and make one too. Instructions can be found here. Everyone who participates either by contributing to my mother-in-law's medical bills, makes a pink block, or shares the link to the donations page will be entered into a give-away that I will be hosting on August 2nd.

Here is my block:

This is a 4" square paper-pieced block. The pattern can be found on Quilter's Cache, here.

Here is a list of the ladies who are participating in this blog hop. Please go check out their blogs as well. Now with direct links to their blog posts about the hop.

Pink Blocks Received in the past two weeks:
 From Debra, a fellow DCMQG guild member
I have also received blocks from Melinda (May 24) and Kathy (May 10), who will be participating in the blog hop as well, so I'm not going to spoil the surprise. You'll just have to go visit their blogs.


  1. I love your block, Anna! I hope you get a great response :)

  2. Great block! I have mine all planned out, but I haven't actually sewn anything yet. I guess I better get busy!

  3. I had breast cancer last year. I was lucky that most bills were covered. If I sewed I would contribute, but I don't... Michelle

  4. I will contribute a block! Going to the site right now to see what to do.
