Daffodil Day Quiltlet

Finished Quilt Size: 12 in x 12 in

A Pin quiltlet is a great new way to display those gorgeous Daffodil Day Pins you have collected over the years.

Daffodil Day began in 1957 when Fran Shannon, a volunteer, decided to sell daffodils to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, and today it is celebrated not only in Canada, but in many countries around the world.

Daffodil Day BadgeDaffodil Day is many things. It is like Remembrance Day for patients, family, friends. It is a time for celebration and gratitude for those who have survived and loving thoughts for those who did not. And it is the opportunity to reflect on how we can help. A Daffodil is a well chosen flower for this day. The bulb sits in the earth for the cold winter, then bursts forth with new life – a symbol of hope and colour and another life. A new beginning.

So many people we know and love have been touched by cancer. Some have fought through it, others have lost the battle. Why not get creative and make a gorgeous little pin quiltlet to remember their lives, and to celebrate the part they have played in our lives, and as you sew the pieces together say a prayer for their families.
