    I warned that once I figured out the photo thing, I'd see a lot from me!

    Yes, one block w a little short, so what!

    Looks very nice. Can't see the one that is smaller, it makes the quilt all the more unique. Great work.

    I love that block with the pink ribbon and the feathers coming off of it. What a unique idea and it is a beautiful block. They are all beautiful.

    I think it has a diagonal flow. Maybe with clear thread. I have so much trouble with bunched up backing, that I ordered prequilted stuff from Joann's. It is much easier to use. I want to add a white print border. I am giving this quilt to my friend's oncologist. I think I'm going to make some of those heart blocks w the scraps. This goes in the closet for now. I may do some fabric shopping in Astoria this weekend, and then I'll finish it. Today, I have to add 2 more rows for the veteran's quilt & borders. A charity group in Georgia will finish it for me. It is huge! I prefer little pieces.

    I looked at the Empire Quilters & will join them as soon as I find a spare $55 ! I know moving is a hassle & you want your own place but I am looking forward to meeting you. Dotty

    Hi Dotty! Just beautiful. I too love the ribbon with the feathers. One of the nicest BC quilts I have seen.

    Gorgeous quilt, Dotty, for such a worthy cause!
    I thought the block that was short was a planned one!! It blends in with the others, your design decision.

    Me too. Things are slowing down now that storage is almost full. Now is a matter of going around picking what to bring with me and do some serious cleaning. Some dust bunnies still laughing at me. Do you want to hold the quilting? Maybe I can help with the quilting. I have an idea for the ribbon with feathers. Is it fused? Is on my list of patterns to do some day.

    I love the quilt, and the message is beautiful. But doesn't it remind you of breast...one is always smaller than the other! That is what that block represents!

    I am a breast cancer survivor and your quilt is the most unique and beautiful one I've seen. I am also Native American and the ribbon with the feathers touched my heart.

    Dotty--You have done a fabulous job putting the quilt together. I love your choice for sashing! Thank You so much for participating it was my pleasure to do a swap for such a worthwhile cause. Cancer does affect so many people and keeping the awareness out there also raises money to help in the research.

    No. I didn't made the one on Dotty's quilt. I just know where it came from.
