November 2017 One Monthly Goal Update: Cancer Can Kiss My Donkey Quilt


When I decided that this cancer comfort quilt would be my November One Monthly Goal as part of Elm Street Quilt's monthly motivation, I thought it would be a fairly easy finish. The letters were made with patterns from Lori Holt's awesome  book, Spelling Bee.  The donkey pattern was first published in 1931!


This quilt top went together quickly, but the super soft minky was a pain in the...donkey.  Minky has a tendency to shift. And the larger the quilt, the more likely the minky is to shift. This quilt turned out much larger than I intended! With all those spiral turns, I had to stop more than once to rip out areas where the minky folded over or wrinkled.

But all is well, and I finished it on the last day of the month. I'll take a picture in daylight tomorrow and write up a full post about this quilt. In the meantime, I'm going to post this entry to the link up before midnight!

Updated: Here is the full write up on the quilt.

  1. Your quilt turned out wonderful. I'm sure the minky (despite it being a pain to work with) makes for a wonderful quilt back. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  2. P.S. - I like those diagonal-stripe cornerstones!
