    I agree, see if you can work from your stash. You could do a label with the ribbon. Not so obvious but still there.

    You could also attach a removable pink ribbon, to the quilt.

    I was talking to a couple friends who have been quilting for about 100 years between the two of them. They do lots of charity quilts for a variety of causes.

    They told me that at a silent auction they are lucky to get $100.00 for a quilt, but if it is auctioned they generally make at least $500.00.

    Me, I would never bid on a ribbon or pink quilt, I am not a pink person and in general do not like the ribbons that are used to promote just about everything. I do financially support a variety of organizations, but not ribbon campaigns. A scrappy quilt, or even a simple 9 patch or D9P would hold more appeal.

    Hi Lynnie, I made a quilt to be raffled for local man with cancer. We made over $600.
    I made a D9P with neutral fabrics so it would be fine for a man or a woman. I was so pleased with the outcome.
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery!!

    Another D9P

    I'd do a mix of pinks and white - same white fabric, variety of the pinks
    tothenci posted a link today to a new D9p technique that I think would be nifty.

    For my first donation quilt for a breast cancer fundraiser, I made the "Quilt of Many Ribbons" - http://www.humblebeequiltworks.com/QofMR%20Final.pdf - It was auctioned off for $500...to a breast surgeon, who has it displayed in his office. This year's donation quilt is a Triple Irish Chain, with embroidered flowers in the center squares. I hope it does well. Good luck!

    i do a breast cancer quilt every year for donation to a auction called bowl for the cure and always bowl in the tournament as well and i make it in all colors of pink with some breast cancer fabric in it 1st yr i made a nine patch, last year i made the cancer quilt with a panel from block party studios and not sure what im going to do this year but
    they always bring in a good bit of money and since ive had several relatives in my family with all kinds of cancer it gives me a small feeling of fighting back. its not the pattern or even the color although i feel if its for breast cancer it should be in pink its that feeling of helping out or fighting back that helps most.
