To read more about why I chose the word Fuck please go read my post on the first Fuck Cancer quilt. And remember people, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all--if you have conservative values and/or don't like curse words, just leave. Just stop reading. Nothing you can say will change my feelings, make me feel shame, or convince me to not use the word fuck.

I was asked by mom to make another Fuck Cancer quilt to donate to her friend's charity auction. Her friend is a cancer survivor and advocate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She has helped organize many fund raisers, including the one I donated this quilt for.
I decided I wanted something quick to piece, so I could focus my time on the quilting. I dug through my orphan quilt blocks and chose a small stack of HST leftovers from this quilt I made 4 years ago.

I used two layers of batting for added weight and texture--one layer of Warm and Natural and one layer of Quilter's Dream Wool. It is bound in Kona Sage (I think), and the grey fabric is Kona Coal.
It is quilted using Aurifil 40wt in #5022 (mustard). The words are quilted using Aurifil 28wt #1148 (light jade). I used Aurifil 50wt #2605 (grey) in the bobbin.

You can bid on this quilt (and many other awesome prizes) through Saturday evening (MST), May 2nd. So if you're interested in having this quilt for yourself or someone you know, please go bid on it! All money raised benefits the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
