One of my recent projects is a quilt donated to a Tri for a Cure, an event that takes place in Portland, Maine. Each year, over a thousand women gather in South Portland to swim, bike & run as they Tri for a Cure in Maine’s only all-women’s triathlon.
The Tri for a Cure is an unique opportunity for women to engage in the fight against cancer in Maine. The triathletes share a unique bond; some are cancer survivors, others are racing in support of their loved ones, but all of them share the desire to create a cancer-free Maine.
I incorporated the activities of swimming, biking and running into the quilt and quilted it with a breast cancer awareness symbol. My daughter will be participating in the Tri for a Cure for the 2nd time this July and I will attend as a spectator to cheer her and other friends as they participate! The event is both inspiring and moving and I was glad to be a part of it by creating a quilt.
