Memorial to Breast Cancer Victims

A Memorial to Breast Cancer Victims: Lydia Shimek

I made these blocks during sessions at the Downtown Eastside Centre for the Arts. The stratas of strip pieced fabrics had originally been sewn during a workshop with Marilyn Doheny about 15 years ago. The Dresden plate block was paper pieced by my daughter before that. By the time I put the blocks together and October being breast cancer month, the title was set.
