    Here are pictures of an upcoming group of fabrics by Quilting Treasures. It's not like most "pink ribbon" fabric groups... because there is no pink ribbon loop motif in these designs.

    So... I'm wondering... was that a good idea or a bad idea? Quilting Treasures' previous groups were by Karen Neuburger, and they always featured the ribbon loops prominently. This one focuses on the ladies.

    If you were making a quilt... would you lean toward the tradition pink ribbons, or do you like the ladies?

    Here are some coordinates. The dots come in several other colorways, but you'll get the ideaL

    And two more coordinates. The heart swirls also come in black-on-white and a color the maker calls dark magenta.

    Finally is a small preview picture of the project that goes with this collection.

    Like the fabrics. When quilting a quilt using them you can always incorporate the pink ribbon design throughout the quilt or just in one area.

    I like pink, and I like many of these.

    I like the idea of supporting breast cancer research, but I don't want to be reminded every moment that breast cancer exists, and that's what the pink ribbon motif does. So no pink ribbons for me.

    I like the ladies. They don't scream breast cancer to me and some patients like a more subtle approach.

    I like them and I think that you could applique the pink ribbon on to one of the squares or borders if you wanted to

    Hi Favourite Fabrics - I was just wondering, do you use our feedback to inform your buying/stocking decisions? :-)

    Ditto! If I were the patient receiving such a gift, I think I'd prefer a more subtle approach also. :)

    Love the prints!

    Hi Having been down this road I like the ladies and hearts. Just add a little ribbon on the side or work it in someplace. Us survivors don't need reminders and the ladies are funny and make you laugh. Laughing is good. Tisha :lol:

    :roll: Hi Use happy fabric. Having been down this road myself and with mom, anything pink brings back memories. It is very nice of you to be supportive and want to make a quilt. :wink: Tisha

    I love buying tickets on quilts for a cause, but I really don't care for the quilts that are made with the pink ribbon loop on it. I especially don't like the ones with the BIG pink ribon right in the center of a quilt. I would rather buy a ticket on something that was made with fabric like the Loralie fabric shown here or maybe something with just a hint of pink. To commemmorate that it is a pink ribbon quilt, state it on the label. I think that's enough.

    OK, looks like I'm in the minority but I don't care for the 'ladies'. I do like some of the coordinates however. As a survivor and going through it with my mom, I don't care for lots of pink ribbons but I personally love pink! The one I made for an auction last June had browns, greens, pinks and neutrals because I wasn't sure who was going to want to buy it. I didn't want it to scream "BREAST CANCER". Course it was at a muscle car club event too. My DH actually bid on it as a surprise for me but the lady that purchased it said "it doesn't matter how high you bid, it's going home with me". She was a friend so I was happy. Thank you for posting all these wonderful fabrics in advance. I always get there when they are all gone.

    I like the ladies and the hearts also. I will be facing chemo some day in the future, and hope I can keep my sense of humor during it all. I am living with an incurable form of leukemia, so am very sensitive to cancer patients. I just think the gals are so cute they would make me smile. Guess you would have to know the person, hard for somebody else to know what would work. If any doubts....stay subtle.

    I am doing blocks for the Breast Cancer swap and have the same ladies on the material I am using but they are in a different design. I agree with most here. I thought they would be a change from the ribbon material. I love these new fabrics!

    I vote for Loralie. The ladies make me feel happy & the darker pink is a hit in my book. Let us know when it's out.
