A couple weeks ago I learned the owner of our local quilt shop was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I thought it might be nice to make her a Prayer Shawl. My mom knits prayer shawls in Wisconsin but this will be quilted since I don’t know how to knit or crochet. I found a very cute quilt on Pinterest that used a free pattern by Sindy Rodenmayer 2009. It is the “Ribbon Butterfly” on a 12 1/2″ block. It uses appliqué which is a new technique for me. This is a favorite technique used by my friend, Shirley. Several years ago my mom gave me a beautiful shawl and it will be the perfect pattern to create the Breast Cancer Prayer Shawl. Sixteen 12 1/2″ blocks will be perfect for this project. The weather is pretty awful here in Michigan and as soon as the roads clear, I am gonna head to her shop to pick fabrics for the shawl. Here is the location to the free pattern:
I really like many of the patterns on this site, especially the angels for my friend, Lisa. This is a BOM pattern under the Retail Patterns tab.
