Theme details

Purple theme - Please use Sienna's interests as a starting point for choosing a pattern. We need a good mix of themes and if possible, only one square for each theme. You can use other colours in your design as this adds interest to the quilt, but purple is the dominant colour.

Child Interests

Purple is her favourite colour, she loves horses, princesses and koalas and kangaroos! Sienna really just loves all things beautiful, flowers, butterflies and stars.


Sienna was a smiley, very happy baby. On Father’s Day 2020, Sienna was 3 months old and we noticed one leg was larger than the other on the top half. We were concerned, but she seemed otherwise fine. Siennas grandmother was a nurse, and after speaking with her she suggested seeing someone straight away, so we headed to the prince Charles emergency room. When getting there we noticed how pale she was looking, but apart from that she seemed happy and alert.
Drs started tests, but said they weren’t concerned. A few hours passed and we were told Sienna had leukaemia, but that’s all they could tell us. We were put in an ambulance and transferred to the children’s hospital were it was confirmed, and her treatment commenced the same day.
We spent 6 months living in QCH, in that time Sienna underwent 5 rounds of chemo, then finally a bone marrow transplant in January 2021.
Since her transplant Sienna has remained in remission, and has been on immune suppressants to assist with helping her body adjust to its new cells. Sienna is now 2.5 years old, has welcomed a new baby brother this year and is thriving according to her medical professionals.
