Walking for Peanuts

I've just finished a wall quilt for Anna that commemorates her participation in the Boston 3-Day Walk for a Cure next week. It's called "Walking for Peanuts" since she's dedicated her walk to her Grandma Mae "Peanuts" Fisher, a breast cancer survivor.
Dan was kind enough to take some pictures for me so I could post it right away.
I started with the design from an overly large sweatshirt I bought in Boston. Adding pink fabric in a crazy piecing manner around the design, I then embroidered over the seams and did some embellishment with beads, buttons, ribbon, and lace.
Next to quilting, embroidery is one of my favorite things to do. I completed most of the embroidery on the screened porch, my favorite sanctuary.
I'm so proud of Anna for doing this walk. I really admire her dedication to raising money and training for the walk itself.
