    HELP making breast cancer quilt need

    Your opinions please.
    i live in a condo, we are having a ig todo.i was asked to make a quilt for next year.
    What should i do.
    Should i do something simple like a 9patch or d9p. A four patch...keep n mind, no one is paying for this...
    or do i do random blocks,almst like a sampler. Do i get one of those printed panels with words cut them up and make as a center of a block.
    I know i can count on all of you to gie me greaf advice.
    What would you like to bid on and win???

    Since you will be footing the bill, can you make a lap quilt maybe "controlled scrappy". That way you can use your stash--translation, low cost. I know, you paid good money, but if you are like me it becomes almost free after it sits in you stash for awhile. Another thing you could do is watch for the sales and load up on fabric. Good luck and happy hunting.

    As a breast cancer survivor I think it should be pink, of course

    Ya know, if they ask you to do the quilt and pay for it, then they should be happy with what you choose. Don't worry about anyone who "can't stand scrappy" and might not like it; do what YOU want to do, with it!

    Is this for a raffle quilt? I wouldn't make one for a silent auction; not worth the effort.

    I would not necessarily make it pink or have a ribbon in it. I'd select colors I like to work with from my stash and find a relatively easy pattern to make. Anyone who doesn't like it would be welcome to make a better one the following year!

    I am a survivor too and always stay away from pink/pink ribbons. We have had some discussions on the board about survivors who do and do not like the pink/pink ribbons.

    I like the idea of pink, but I also like the color. Perhaps a brightly colored sampler type. Kind of controlled scrappy.
    I would stay away from ribbons and such.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
