If you knew Cheryl Lavon aka @CherylLaVon you were a lucky person. She was one of the sweetest people on here. Someone that even though she was fighting cancer on a daily basis, was still here to swap, to chat and to crack jokes. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was a really fun gal. She is truly missed by so many. She is one of the best people I, personally, have ever known in any kind of online basis.
It's been almost a year since she passed away from cancer. Lung Cancer. I think we should make this quilt something that she would love, what do you think? I have looked over her profile and here are some things she really loved:
So I think we should have a theme to the quilt(s) of animals and/or nature. Most of what she lists has to do with nature and animals, so that fits.
This swap is for any of a range of quilters. Beginners to expert. Hand sewing to machine sewing. The love behind what you are making is the most important part of this swap.
What we are going to do:
What's going to happen: You are going to send the finished quilt squares to me. I will put all the squares together and finish the quilt and donate it to the American Cancer Association.
To your partner, you will send either a photo of the quilt square you made or a note that says what you have went through with cancer in your life. Do you know someone that has or had cancer? Has cancer impacted your life in anyway? Did you know Cheryl? What was it about her that made her special to you?
I'm going to say if you have below a 4.85 we may have to do a private swap. I don't want anyone to flake on this swap, this is a memorial for Cheryl.
If you want to donate materials for this swap, but don't want to actually join the swap, please pm me.

I'm going to contact Rachel so hopefully she can showcase it on the Swapbot blog!
You are more then welcome to incorporate one of Cheryl's major loves: DOTEES This was an idea brought up in the forums. Basically what you will need to do is make a dotee, just minus the stuffing. Then you applique(or sew it) onto a piece of fabric and poof instant quilt block! Any questions, feel free to pm me.
Just make sure there are not any 3d hard items on the block: no beads/sequins/charms/etc. I don't want to run into problems when I am quilting it.
