    This is currently a WIP...
    I'm winging it. It's all paper pieced.
    It is currently about 37" x 37". I'd like it to be
    around 80" x 80" when finished and want to stay with the
    pink,black and white.
    Thoughts/suggestions are welcomed as this is all up in the air at this time.

    :lol:
    Thanks!
    Lori

    Looks good but I think its time for a sashing of black and then more ribbons.

    Looks really good. Why not treat as an extra large block and create another 3 exactly the same and then sew the four together and then add another border. That would take it out to at least 80 x 80.

    Maybe some more of the pink and black pinwheels around that section. Or frame in black and some more pink ribbons.

    love it. I should make one of these for my mother as she is a 2 time breast cancer survivor. and I like the idea of paper piecing it (a technique I just learned). thanks for showing us.

    I suggest a black and white "checkerboard" border next. Looks great!

    As a breast cancer "thriver," I appreciate your efforts. I think you have oodles of pink ribbons. Now, how about bordering this with lots of different pink and white, or all shades of pink stars. Then maybe some pink flying geese. Maybe pinwheels after that. Keep it interesting for yourself to work on.

    It is lovely!
