    I am in the process of brainstorming for quilt ideas for a fundraiser that I volunteered for. I just found out that some friends of the family are having a fundraiser on Feb 19th for my cousin who has Stage 4 Colon cancer to help offset the unbelievable amount of medical bills that have accumulated.

    With the vast amount of talent here on the board, I know that you all will be able to help... :)

    Here are my questions:
    I'm not sure if I should focus on a ribbon block (or big ribbon shape) and make the quilt about the cancer or if I should leave out the ribbon and just do it in blues (that is the color of the colon cancer ribbon)?
    Does anyone here have ideas for a ribbon quilt or ribbon blocks that are somewhat quick and easy?

    Thank you in advance for the ideas and I will be looking foward to hearing from you...

    Thanks, Deb :)

    Making a non theme quilt may appeal to more people... just a thought...

    I agree make the non-themed quilt but thenput a themed label on it.

    I would sell raffle tickets rather than expect i person to buy the quilt. And have a lot of small gifty items that someone can purchase.

    For a fundraiser that I made a quilt for I did it in a theme of interest to the person the fundraiser it was for. In the end his grandmother won it and gave it to him. I think they auctioned it off.

    I agree with the non themed idea using the blue colors.

    This sounds like a great idea. I think more people would buy tickets for it or it would go better as an auction item if it would "fit" in everyone's home.
