    Breast cancer quilt

    Thank you 2013 Sister UFO Thread. I had some suggestions an Fraew sent me a photo of the chimneys/cornerstone log cabin blocks. I adapted it into my setting so I could get these blocks to work a secondary pattern. Roberto Fabuloso and I traded embroidery for quilting for the breast cancer embroidered blocks, which are absolutely beautiful, and a couple trips thru the stash, nothing found, DH went to LQS in CDA, ID, not quite a match, then to the sale rack at the other LQS I shop and teach, and score! Found the some border fabric which then became the outer border and sashings, the pink came fromt he 30s fabric selection, and then the green and rose from the other floral section of the store. Had several ladies helping me because I am not a pastel person. Love the result. Did a panto called Meadows with dragon flies and butterflies, with rosebuds. Blended in so nicely. Used a soft white So Fine thread. This is going to a lady who is going thru breast cancer right now, my DH cousin's wife. So worth the work for someone who has to go thru this horrible disease.

    Just gorgeous! You did a lovely job on this.

    It is a very pretty quilt. I love the embroidery.

    This is the nicest breast cancer quilt I have ever seen. You should be very proud.

    Something this lovely can be so uplifting to receive. It's very pretty but even more than that, it has such special meaning.
