Introducing ‘Erica’s Heart’, a quilt that tells an incredible story about an incredible woman. Erica Summers discovered she had breast cancer 3 1/2 years ago. After major surgery, chemo and radiation, she was declared cancer free. This May, she was told she was Stage 4. Erica is fighting bravely for herself, her husband Scott and her son and daughter. She is living life to its fullest as she has her treatments, her joy and bubbly personality never ceasing to shine. She is strong, funny, loved by a multitude of people and she is a Quilter!
This quilt was actually designed several years ago, but the designer never felt the need to finish the pattern. In May 2010, when it was revealed that Erica’s cancer had returned, God whispered 'now' and we have ‘Erica's Heart’.
The original 82”x94” quilt was made by Mary Nell Larson, Mary Talley and Sammie Roderick in honor of their close friend and sewing partner. All proceeds from the sale of these tickets will go to the Bridges/Erica Summers Fund to help defer medical expenses.  The pattern was designed by Brenda Clyde and was custom quilted by Sharon Hughes Machine Quilting. The pattern is available for purchase at Robin Place Fabrics for $10, with $2 of the cost being  donated to the Bridges/Erica Summers Fund.
The quilt will be displayed at First American Title and the winning ticket will be drawn at 12:00 Noon on August 14th at the Bridges office.  Tickets may be purchased at SouthCentral Title Agency, First American Title Agency, Robin Place Fabrics and from numerous people in the Kenai, Soldotna and Homer area. 
Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 tickets for $20.00.
