The Sutter Cancer Center is looking more like a blanket fort than a medical facility these days, with 475 vibrantly handcrafted quilts monopolizing wall space on six of the hospital’s floors.

Smiling turtles trot across fabric squares while pink ribbons display messages of hope and strength. The patchwork of images floods the building with a sense of warmth and whimsy seen only once every three years at Sutter – during the quilt auction, its biggest breast cancer fundraiser.
