A few weeks ago, a fellow member of the STLMQG announced she had been diagnosed with cancer, just weeks after giving birth to her fourth child. She's not much older than me. Cancer really sucks.
Some of her friends quickly assembled a group with a plan to hold an auction to raise funds for her and her family. One of the items to be auctioned is a quilt, and they asked members of the guild and other friends to contribute umbrella blocks for it (we used this tutorial from Craftsy). These three cheery blocks will be making their way into the quilt in the coming weeks.
If you're on Instagram, you can find out more about the auction, which will be taking place in May, by following @dropsofloveforem.
