    cancer ribbon blocks

    I have a friend who is going through the battles, her mom saw a quilt at the cancer center that depicted each color ribbon and asked me of I could do something like that. Well, of course I could! The 24 blocks are finished ( I used the heart/ribbon paper pieced pattern from Carol Doak - free patterns, enlarged ) So, today I hope to get it put together.

    Those blocks came out so lovely. I didn't know that there were so many ribbons until I saw a chart for which month was for which cancer. I am sure this will help your friend immensely thru the rough terrain of battling her cancer.

    beautiful blocks.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    There are 26 cancer ribbons, each type of cancer has its own....except there are 2 repeats, so I made 24, making it easier for a 4 across, 6 rows layout. I was not getting my brain around the 26...here's the rows together, she wanted bright & colorful... Been a gloomy winter.... Still need to add a border all the way around.Name:  IMG_20150310_141802.jpg

    How sweet of you and the love you have for your friend. I know she will love it, and it will mean so much more since it came from a dear friend.

    Very nice. It wasn't until a few years ago that I realized the meanings of all the different colored ribbons.
