    My daughter has asked me to make a quilt for her sorority's annual Red Dress auction in Dec. I'm looking for patterns or ideas. Have any of you made or seen a quilt that uses Greek letters that you especially liked? Any thoughts, pictures, or pattern sources would be greatly appreciated!

    Awesome! This could be just the pattern! The Red Dress dinner/auction benefits the American Heart Association which is Alpha Phi's philanthropy. Does this pattern have a particular name?

    The pattern is from the book "Growing up with Quilts" by Mimi Dietrich & Sally Schneider, the pattern is called "Hearts and Ribbons".
