Oh Paula, I'm so sorry for your loss. I completely understand why you wouldn't want to make that block. Beautiful substitution instead!
I so understand why you did not o the ribbon block, so sad to lose your son to cancer, so sad when anyone loses one of their children at whatever age. Your blocks look good, have not done the last one yet as it looks s fiddly maybe I will alter it a bit but plan to have a go later this week
yes... cancer takes so many... so sorry for your loss. It's important to know how to cope with loss, including something like replacing one block for another.
