    Relay for Life Quilt Help!

    These blocks were made as part of a swap with some friends. I'm going to add another block (either green or yellow) to make it 3 blocks by 3 blocks. (36x36)

    What color do you think I should use for the sashing??

    You mentioned Relay for Life ... and yet I don't see a "pink" ribbon, that would be their colour.

    You might want to take a look at the different awareness ribbons as to what groups are represented by what you already have ... and decide which you want to use for your extra block?

    Sashing ... what about bordering each block with something that coordinates with it's ribbon, and then put them side-by-side?

    A friend who was also in the swap (her student's from the Kids Club put together the pink and orange blocks) suggested using the Angel Babies we had made in a previous swap too.

    Sorry I don't have the best lighting by my design wall. The Pink block is on the top right on the first block and third left row on the 2nd. Wouldn't leave that one out, that's the battle I fight.

    I think purple sashing would be a good choice. It represents the survivor. I also have a Relay For Life quilt this year. I love the angels in it!!

    Just beautiful, think I would use a multi colored Batik to set it off.

    Thanks everyone and yes the patterns for both the Angels and the ribbons are free. They are on FatCat's site http://fatcatpatterns.com/ If you look under Awareness, we did the ribbon with feathers last year. Those feathers were a bugger!!
